08 Apr Absolutely Anything Day 13
Today we got our own bus to play with. Well, the loan of a bus, which we fill with extras who gaze in astonishment at a very disheveled Simon (explanations later) as he magically appears, jumps off and runs down the road past the bus stop. But there’s a problem: we’ve been provided with the wrong sort of bus stop.
And though another sort of bus stop can be provided, it won’t be here for forty five minutes. I’m afraid I must own up to consoling Terry by pointing out that though most of us have experienced waiting for a bus, very few people except him have had to wait for a bus stop.
But when it arrives our line producer Margarita Doyle is able to cap this, because it seems the request for a replacement bus stop has gone out twice, and after our wait, as with buses, she predicts that three bus stops will now arrive at once.
