Instead, I learned, from another passenger who could speak English, that I had forgotten to swipe my bus card when I boarded. This is like not paying.
I corrected my oversight. I returned to my seat about I then thought about the previous times I had boarded the bus, taken my seat, and wondered if I had remembered to swipe my bus card.
I also wondered if there had been times that I had gone to work, and forgotten to put pants on.
I am middle-aged now, so my memory is beginning to deteriorate.
