Perhaps no one had told her and she was unaware of the schedule. That must be it. I was the recipient of a little stroke of luck. I might now take my time and capture this little creature. The thought made me feel very comfortable. I, who had never been an exceptionally lucky individual, was going to be the lucky winner of Miss Brevist. I smiled as I approached her (I must admit that the load was rather cumbersome). Little did she know that another bus was leaving at eight-thirty!
She waved to me. Apparently she had gotten a taxi. Then I noticed something in her hand. It was in the hand which was waving. There in her hand grasped securely, was a bus schedule. She had a bus schedule. She must have known about the eight thirty bus all along.
My mind became confused. She knew about the bus schedule and yet she told me that the next bus would not be coming until two in the morning. She must have known that I would suggest staying at a hotel. Yes, that was it! I came to this marvel of deductive reasoning just as we were getting into the taxi.
That was it: she was picking me up!

It’s a summer break he’d never experienced—and hopefully never will again.
