Ouma + Seeing The World

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Ouma: What are you calling a cab for? You’re wasting such a lot of money. I can walk!

Me: …You can walk 100 blocks?

Ouma: Fine. Let’s take a bus.

Me: Ouma, really. We can just call a car.

Ouma: Come! I want to see the city like a local.

As we get on the bus, my subway card stops working. Or ran out of money. Or something.

The driver looks from me to my grandmother as Ouma and I discuss what to do.

Then he smiles.

Him: Is it her birthday?

Me: …no.

Him: Tell me it’s her birthday.

Me: …It’s her birthday (?)

Him: Ok, just come on. Birthday girls get on free.
