Today I started a conversation with a stranger on the light rail. It wasn’t his fault.
Well it was. I am currently reading an amazing book for the second time. Probably the best I have ever read, and I know that’s a very big call to make, but I don’t read that widely so it is not hard to top me.
However imagine my surprise when I see a slightly twitchy man wearing glasses and headphones reading the same! Catch-22. To randomly start talking to him would be a little kooky, but the guy (at least if he is enjoying the book) must be a kooky type of person. At least in some regard. Catch-22.
It’s been quite some time since I talked to a random stranger. Today something just prompted me to go for it.
What did you do today?
