Drawing on Foggy Bus Windows

Drawing on Bus Windows: Snowman Drawing on Bus Windows: Sky

We all often sit like robots on the bus. I’m a reading robot. Being a robot can be good sometimes, because we respect each other’s quiet and space. But we don’t have to be totally robotic.

This past Wednesday night I was in a good mood after a very good small group Bible study. The 81 bus was tooting along Lawrence Avenue. My seat in the back of the bus had a nice big window that was all fogged up. I kinda looked around at the people on the bus and shrugged to myself, “I’ll draw on the window.” A nice happy snowman appeared on the window. Then a pile of snowballs, a Christmas tree, some presents. Then there was the top window. A moon, stars and clouds. Not a great masterpiece, but it was something fun.

Some dude sat in the seat facing me and my creation. He was just staring at the window. Studying it. lol.

I’d like to do something really cool next time. Not that coolness is the point of this. But still, it would really rock to do something along the lines of the mailbox snowmen. What would be good for a bus window?

how about drawing advertisements for your favorite websites? I’m sure the folks at artis3letters.com would love such free advertising.

I wish my work didn’t block flickr! I can read this post at work, but if there are flickr pix, I can’t see them ๐Ÿ™ Whenever I find myself at a restaurant that has paper tablecloths I immediately start looking for the crayons so I can write tomsaaristo.com all over the place. I’m rarely on a bus anymore, but next time I encounter a foggy window I’ll try my hand at writing my url backwards so the pedestrians and drivers can see my ad ๐Ÿ˜›

Wow! It is a great honor to be mentioned here. It’s great to have this recognition after spending years struggling and sneaking in frozen food stores throughout Chicagoland. This is for the grocery store staff who have to clean the frozen food glass doors with my finger “prints” and provide me with a blank canvas the next time I visit. … Without you I’m nothing! Oh, there’s no award? ๐Ÿ™‚ OK, this is why twitter is probably better for me. 140 character limit stops my rambling! Thanks! you can delete this!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
