Assunto:  jumping a moving bus vs jumping on a moving bus
 
Mensagem:  In my school kid days in Salvador-BA, I used to do it, I mean, I used to jump on moving, crowded suburban buses as they labored up Galés Hill. I often made a run for it. Sometimes I'd miss the back door knob and abort the attempt. I remember one time when I dashed for the bus, didn't miss the door knob but lost my foothold and crashed on the hardness of the sidewalk. Most of my books spilled out of my school bag, plus I had some minor bruises. I never gave up. Next day I'd make a run for it again.

I stopped jumping moving buses when I moved up to Caruaru city, Pernambuco. (Should I have used it with an on there?)
