"I ride the bus!"

My wife works in a Middle School. The job can be … let’s say challenging … sometimes. But she got tired of complaining whenever people asked how school was going. (Maybe that scripture in Philippians 2 had something to do with it: Do everything without complaining or arguing.) Anyway, when people would ask how school was going, she started answering, “I’m not an undergoer, I’m an overcomer. I rise above!”

She said that at our Pueblo group the other day and one of the ladies misunderstood her and said, “You what? You ride the bus?” So that’s our new code-word. So now, if I ask her how school’s going, she says, “I ride the bus!”
