strange talk

i'm a big fan of chatting with strangers.

note to self: remember this. do it more often. it makes you happy.

the other day in dc, i sidled up to a woman walking down the street and said, "your shoes are rockin'." she beamed and thanked me. they were--her shoes were tremendously blue and sparkly. i saw the sun glinting off her toes from a distance.

in the city, i chatted with a woman who got off the train at the same stop. i asked her what language some guys sitting near us were speaking, and we laughed in recognition of our shared curiosity.
