For years there’s been this one guy who I regularly pass by as I’m walking around the streets of Berkeley. We always say hello to each other. He always say:
“Hello there, Ace. How are you doing today?”
And I always say, “How you doin’, my man.”
Then we exchange brief pleasantries, and then go on our separate ways. . . .
I have no idea who he is. Or how I got connected to him. Evidently, in the distant past, I had some kind of brief exchange with him. And then, for the next 5 years, I’m kind of required to say hello to him every time I pass him on the street. Weird how that stuff happens. He’s a nice guy. So I’m always friendly. But its just a little weird to be connected to somebody that I have no idea how, or why, we ended up connected.
Do you guys get stuff like that, or is it just me?
