Jennifer is hilarious. Some bons mots:

"There is no smoking on this bus. If you smoke in the lavatory, I
will smell it and do what is legally required and remove you from this
coach. If you must smoke in the lavatory, I suggest you bring a
friend. That way you'll have someone to talk to while you stand on
the side of the road."

"I'll try to keep the temperature at a happy medium. If you are cols,

"I'm what's known as a rock 'n' roll bus driver - I roll down the
road and rock you to sleep. Introduce yourself to your neighbor now
because it's always good to know the name of the person you sleep

I like her. She'll be a good guide through Aurora, IL, DeKab, I'll,

Iowa City in the next 5 hours, 20 minutes. And the guy behing me is
already snoring away!
