Feeling... Loved?

Just a quick note for amusement:

On my drive home today, I only had two brief strange encounters. And they were not life-threatening.

While driving merrily on my way, I looked at a car I was about to pass and noticed a small child's arm hanging out the window. As I drove up next to them to pass them, the little boy (probably about 6 or 7) in the car stuck almost his entire upper body out the window and started waving frantically at me with a huge grin on his face. So of course, I smiled and waved back. How nice of him.

I made it home at about 1:15 in the morning and had already gotten one of my bags out to take inside. I had to park on the other side of the street from my house, and as I was getting ready to cross the road, I noticed a car coming. So I waited patiently for them to pass. As they passed me by, I heard one of them call out the window, "I love you!"

Hmmm... Well, what else is there to do at 1 AM but call out the window at random people that you love them. That would definitely be my activity of choice.

Lol, only two strange encounters? I guess not everyday can be ENTIRELY weird...:P

The "I Love You!" encounter made me think of something similar which happened while (it is at this point that you came online...weird, huh?) I was colportering one summer. I was in a van full of my fellow colporterers, and our driver cut off a woman on the freeway.

Well, the woman pulled up next us, rolled the window down and began yelling at us while making the obligatory rude hand gesture. So, one colporterer rolled our window down and yelled "We Love You!" back at her.

Suffice it to say that the look on her face will always be a treasured memory.
