‘ride or die’
I walk into the coffee shop. The tables are full. I eye an empty seat. Yet, I hear a full conversation in bloom.
Their eyes welcome me before their voice box did. So, when I sat down next to the man to the right of them it felt as if they left the seat open for me. In an instant they brought me into their conversation about animals in Africa.
Don’t you love when people inspire the feeling that we aren’t strangers at all, in fact, most times, we’re just a chair away from being connected.
