Talking To Strangers
We went to pick up our share from a food co-op yesterday. We were supposed to be there at 7:15, but the truck was late so they were not set up in time. We stood in line (outside) for about 45 minutes. Now think about this.... February, 7:15 am, Saturday. Nobody really wanted to be standing in a long line outdoors. Two ladies in line behind me started talking. We didn't talk about anything in particular. We just chatted and laughed. It made standing in that line so much nicer, and it made the time go by much faster. I used to be annoyed by my mom talking to people she didn't know in the grocery store. Now it just makes me smile.
