OMG I got a bus!!!

I am officially the proud, giddy owner of a 1996 Internatiinal Thomas DT466E!

I called up my spouse and had a fun conversation:
Me: guess what?!
A: what?
Me: we now own a bus!
A: long pause... What?!
Me:we got a bus!
A: you got a bus?!?
Me: yea! I told you today was the day! You know I've been obsessed with this idea!
A: yea, but I didn't you'd actually go through with it!

So there will be a crawfish boil with beer in Cypress pretty soon for abus work day!
I'm so excited I literally almost peed my pants!

Welcome!, I know the feeling and your wife's response. I drive my bus to work every day two weeks a month, the storagefor the bus is across the street from the office and no problem so far to park behind my house complex.

Good luck and have fun converting, 99% of people don't see the logic on getting the bus. We skoolies do

Isn't telling your spouse just a little bit more exciting than the actual purchase?
