travel advice

“The following Saturday morning my mother drove me to the highway to get the New York bus. It was my first time going alone and my mother was nervous.

“Listen, Margaret-don’t sit next to any men. Either sit alone or pick out a nice lady. And try to sit up front. If the bus isn’t air-conditioned open your window. And when you get there ask a lady to show you the way downstairs. Grandma will meet you at the information desk.””

Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret
