When I was in NYC I picked out all kinds of interesting strangers to start conversations with. In this case, it was a quirky youngish Japanese girl in a cow costume. Others were french fry afficianados, bookstore proprietors, bakery customers, or fellow subway riders. Nearly every random conversation turned into a memorable encounter. John wrote about one particularly serendipitous exchange here.
I’m not usually the type of person who’ll strike up a conversation with whoever happens to be nearby. But I think I might just have to change that from here on out…..
What about you? Have you ever had a particularly memorable encounter when chatting with a stranger?
