I had just moved to Pennsylvania from Florida. My very first day on the bus, we were turning a corner and my feet slipped out from under me. I fell right into the lap of the girl beside me. I looked up into her face and she said, “Why did you do that?” I tried to think of something clever to say, but all that came out was, “Uhhhhh ? I thought it would be fun to sit in your lap.” She didn’t find that very amusing and threw me to the floor. The entire bus was in hysterics. They couldn’t believe I had said that. I found out later she was the bully of the bus and she was planning to beat me up just because I was new. But she had nothing to prove then, because I had already made a fool of myself.
