The Guy Who Got Spat On

One day I saw something really bizarre. It was kind of disgusting and also funny in others’ eyes. I was on my way home from school and it was about 3:15 p.m. and I just crossed the street so I can take the 13 bus up the block. Now the bus stop was very crowded like it is usually, and a man was standing not too far but maybe about a foot from me. Then someone spit the nastiest spit that someone ever seen. I mean the spit was gooey like glue and grayish-clear. Then the spit came floating from the air and hit the guy in the face. The guy was mad and shouted nothing but pirate words and swears. Then we took the bus up the hill and he was still mad until he got off the bus.
