Hans Tanner: The New Guy - Chapter 4 (Life Gets Twisted in Daphne)

Written by Hans Tanner

 

So there are two questions I’ve been asking myself lately:

1. Have I lived a sheltered life?
2. Would any life look sheltered when compared to life with the bus?

A noodler for sure, but given the fact that I’ve been prefacing the majority of my sentences with “I’ve never” since being a part of this company, I find myself leaning more towards the first one. As I awoke this morning to an angry downpoor of rain, the activity was soon followed by a flurry of excitement from Ryan and Kevin, both of which were alternating in shouting my name. To be completely honest, it was very similar to the way my two older twin brothers would wake me up on Christmas mornings, only in this instance it was originating from a 24 and 26 year old as opposed to two kids of 8 years. And instead of presents and good Christmas cheer, only lightning, thunder and the impending threat of doom were to be had. 

Surprisingly, amidst all this rumbling no sound was heard louder than that of my stomach, sensing its probability of never being fed again.  Of course, the creature had to be satiated, and of course, my last supper was caught on video.

Enjoy!
