Wednesday. Hump Day. Middle of the Week Day. Day of Woe Day. Not Quite Payday Day. Crazy Bus Driver Day. We are whizzing along. We are so speedy that it's like being on a rocket taking off to explore the unknown. We even overtook a Man in a Van! That's how this bus driver rolls. I see the world being awoken in fast forward mode. Every day I leave the house the sky is a little darker than the day before. Autumn fast approaches. The rising sun casts a pink hue across the land, smothering the fields, the farmhouses and the wind turbines in awe-inspiring colour. Villagers are seizing the day, opening windows to let the air in, toilets flushing, kettles boiling. Dogs are being taken for their regular morning ablutions and cats are mewing to be let in after a night on the tiles painting the town red. With blood, probably. A teenage girl behind me is crunching on crisps. This is what passes for breakfast in the rural Flatlands of England just before the clock strikes seven. This is Wednesday.

Potato crisps for breakfast it's not an exciting way to start the morning.

No, and having to listen to them being eaten is probably worse!

@Poppylicious I fully agree, people eating crisps is my reason not to go to the cinema.

She probably bought one of those when she got into town.

It ended up being a beautifully bright day. Summer is not keen to leave and Autumn is desperate to be here.

@poppylicious I wonder what would happen if every toilet was flushed at the same time. Synchronised flushing could become an Olympic event as could synchronised wind breaking.

Don't you hate it when you add a tag instead of a comment and don't know how to delete it ... *sigh*

Happy Wednesday! I sometimes munch on Doritos for breakfast too... Sad maybe, but it holds me up till lunch and takes no time but one second to open the bag and let me dig in while driving to work...

Ah, but if you do it in your car, on your lonesome, it's okay. You're not offending anybody's barely awake ears!

As usual you come up with a great word picture.
