I remember as a gradeschool kid, drafting my own schoolbus. But, still learning the ins and outs of the toeclips.

The bus stopped. I stopped. Feet remained in the clips... and you know the story, and half the school watched me do the classic flop.
Must have been a small school, if half the school was on one bus.
