It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

This morning, a woman was sitting in front of Amy Number One. Because she was talking to another lady across from her, she was sitting sideways. She was holding a white plastic grocery bag and a candy cane. Amy stuck up a rather shameless, yet hilarious conversation with her.

Amy: What do you have in the bag?

Miss Nona: Presents for people

Amy: Do you have any more candy canes?

Miss Nona: Yes.

Amy: Can I have a candy cane?

Miss Nona: Yes, you can. hands Amy candy cane

Amy: Can you get it started for me?

Miss Nona: laughing Yes. peels plastic off candy cane and hands it back to her
Amy: What's your name?

Miss Nona: Miss Nona

Amy: Miss Nona. Thank you. breaks candy and puts half of it in her mouth

Amy: Do you have any more presents in there?

Miss Nona: Yes, but they really are for other people.

Amy: disappointed Oh.

hee hee! That is fabulous. I can just hear Miss Nona "but they really are for other people"
too cute
don't you wish we could be more like Amy. Actually, I suppose I am a bit. I have a marvelous red hat to prove it.

In a way I wish Amy's mom could have seen it because it was so cute, but I know as her mother she would have been horrified that she asked her for more presents. There was just something so sweet and innocent about it. Everyone on the bus was laughing, even Cranky-Pants the bus driver.

I love it! And now I want to ride the bus so that I can blog about it! I love your blog!!

Hey Lorie! Welcome and much thanks for stopping by! If you find weirdness on the bus, be sure to report about it!

Amy seriously asked her to peel back the plastic? I love it! Much more bold than I could ever be. However, if I were on the bus when that conversation were taking place, I would be craning my neck to eavesdrop.

Are we talking about a full-sized candy cane or one of those lame 1/4 the normal size cane?

To bring my new folks up to speed, Amy is autistic. I figured this out the day the new bus driver yelled at her. There's a post on that. So, Amy doesn't really have "an indoor voice", if you know what I mean. I personally like that she asked Miss Nona to "get it started" and to open it. And yes, it was a full size cane, which she ate in two bites.
