A friendly hello!
I grew up in the country and still don’t exactly live in the city but it’s just different than where I grew up in Alabama. For instance I graduated from high school with 52 seniors then Kindergarten through the twelfth grades were in the same building, my daughter had 275 in her senior class and they packed out with standing room only an auditorium where many famous bands had sold out concerts and after graduating some of them were talking saying that they didn’t even know some of their graduating classmates. That totally amazes me. Where I grew up we knew everyone, from grade K-12, their mothers, dads, cousins, aunts and uncles. I really miss that sometimes. Where I come from, everyone was friendly there, everyone waved when you passed by and you waved at every car you passed on the road and it was highly likely you knew them anyway but even if you didn’t I bet it probably made the person smile that got the wave or maybe made them question just how friendly they were. I am serious, if you were out mowing your yard and car drove by you threw up your hand with a simple wave. It was kind of confusing when we first moved there. It’s kind of funny my daughter’s friend was in the car with us the other day and I waved …she asked me if I knew that person, no I didn’t but I had waved at them anyway, just naturally because that’s the way I grew up. So give it a try and wave at the people you pass on the road or that drive by then you are out in the yard.
