...and as fast as possible

The other morning I was walking to work. It was earlier than usual; the street was quiet, nearly empty. I saw a bus roaring up the street toward me, and I watched it, curious. Buses don't usually run on this street.

The driver must have had it floored.

As it came closer, I could read the destination on the front marquis:

"Nowhere in particular"

It blew past me at top speed.

I love it! No wonder you remembered that incident.

Catch the catbus instead; it always takes you exactly where you want to go. (Wait, have you seen "My Neighbor Totoro"? If not, then you'll just have to take my word for it about the catbus.)
