Open Yourself Up!
In contrast to our rather neggy F-Market story from last week, Rachel Ann Brickner (not pictured) brings us a happy story. She’s on her bike, she rolls up next to a bus waiting at a light. Its driver is friendly, right off the bat:
“Hello!” he said.
“Oh, hello,” I said, turning back & smiling. “How are you?”
“Great! How are you?”
“Good!” I paused & looked around. “The weather’s nice today, yeah?”
“Sure is. Perfect when driving one of these guys,” he said, tapping the steering wheel with his palms.
“Yeah,” I said, extending it, unsure if I should tell him more about myself. “I’ve always liked cable cars. They remind me of Pittsburgh.”
“Oh yeah? Is that where you’re from?”
And then think about it all day! Open yourself up!
