D – Double-Decker Bus and Why Paul Mcartney and I Aren’t Talking (He Knows What He Did)

So, what do you do when you have one day in London and you’re looking for the best way to see the tourist sites.

Perhaps a double-decker bus?  That should be a good way to get around, right?

Wrong.

During my brief visit to London, aside from seeing the sites, I had one goal. To enjoy a high tea.

I purchased a ticket for the ‘reliable’ double-decker tour bus and was advised that the buses come around every ten minutes or so. After standing across from Big Ben for an hour, I realized that I was going to miss my high-tea reservation… and thus began my mad dash across town to get to my high tea. Sure this may sound like a ‘first-world’ problem, but at the time it  was quite traumatic.

Fortunately, I arrived at my high-tea appointment on time, but I learned that traffic was a mess because Sir Paul McCartney had gotten married. A normally efficient and perfectly good system had gone awry because of Sir Paul and his nuptials.

I’m sure Paul and I can put this behind us… I mean, I can get past this if he can, right?

If you want to patch things up, Paul, you know where to find me!

P.S.: Thank you to everyone for participating in my delusion. 🙂

P.P.S.: My apologies to all of you who got an incomplete post, as I had pressed the publish button before I was finished, by accident…
