Frown to a Smile

Few days ago, I was getting into the bus and as usual, I was about to put in 50 cents in the box near the bus driver.

The bus driver stopped me and asked "How old are you?"

I was taken aback!! Assuming that he thought me to be a non-student and expecting me to put in a dollar, I said " I am a student" in a defensive manner.

Bus driver: I know..Thats why I am asking how old are you?

Me: With a frowing face I said "I am 28"

Bus driver: "Oh..I am sorry Ma'm. Today is xyz day for mexicans. So it's free (to ride in bus) for people under 18. I thought you were. That's why I asked"

My frown turned into a wide smile and I said " That's okay"

Bus Driver: You look so young !

"ore pullarippu dhan ponga..." I was thinking to myself " indha oorla makkal valarthiyaa irukardhaala namma younga theriyarom" Yaanai kitta poi nee poonainnu sonnaalum yaanai sandhosham dhan padum pola :)-

Well, on the other hand, yaarume madhikardhulla.. 16 vayadhinile stylela sonnaa.." naan dhaan akkannu'm nu koopdunnu solren..yaaru kekraanga" :)-
