Old People in Hawaii

Old people on the bus with their 40 something minders. One guy's name is "Bill." He must be in his 80s. He's got a tattoo, but you can't tell what it once was. He's really skinny, but was probably a looker in his time...maybe a colonel in the USMC...hero in WWII.

But now he looks confused...keeps checking his pocket for change or something. I wonder what he's thinking. I wonder if he's drugged. Wonder what he's feeling as his minder yells "Not yet, Bill. Just relax. We've got a long way to go still." I wonder if I can create a diversion so that he can escape at the next stop.
