“Come on Thomas,” Ginny begs and bats her eyelashes at him. “I dare you!”
“You crazy girl, do you want me to spoil my good looks. And why blue?”
“Look it will wash out fairly quickly. It’s not permanent.”
Thomas looked at the box of blue color in his hand and then tossed it into the trash. “I’m sorry, but blue is not my color. What a vision that would be.”
Ginny failed to get him to try the color blue, but she was actually overjoyed that he refused to do it. Thomas was still clad in his pajamas since Ginny showed up so early he had been eating breakfast, a delicious repast that his mother had prepared for him. He shared it with Ginny. Ginny leveled her eyes at him and gazed soulfully into his eyes. “We have to work on the list for the wedding. I have looked up a lot of things we need to think about. And I know I hate gold, but what do you think about gold for the girl’s dresses and the guys in black tuxes?”
Thomas was starting to feel overwhelmed with the wedding plans. He felt like putting his hands over his ears and sticking his tongue out at her. There was a loud crash in the area of the street. Not wanting to miss anything they dashed to the door, mindful that Thomas was still in his pajamas.
The school bus was late and had run into the trashcans and a few of the neighbor’s cars. One of the neighbor’s jumped into the bus and heroically checked out the driver. He had his hand over his heart and was pale and gasping for air. Another neighbor arrived who was a doctor and shooed the kids out of the way so he could check him out in private.
9-1-1 was called and the kids were pushed to the back of the bus by the first adult on the scene. The doctor gave him some aspirin to chew to try and stop what appeared to be a heart attack. He asked the man if he took nitroglycerin and when he responded yes, they found his bottle of nitroglycerin and gave him a dose. Now all they could do was wait for the ambulance to get there.
They made sure none of the kids were hurt and called the school for a replacement driver. Ginny pinched herself to make sure she wasn’t dreaming all of this. She had class in a little while and Thomas had to get ready for work. She wondered if he would mind if she hitched a ride with him. Although the bus didn’t hit her car she was kind of blocked in right now.
