Lunch Break Friends

So today I took myself out to a cafe for lunch. I stood at the counter, got my food on a plate and looked around for somewhere to sit. There were a few places but there was also a really fun looking bunch of people chatting and laughing. So I went over and asked if I could join them. They said yes so I sat.
We yacked away for 20 minutes about life, the universe and everything and the answer to all of it was seven. Go figure? And then I wondered back to work with a huge smile on my face.

Isn’t it lovely when we can just let go and expect the best of people? When we can put ourselves out there without fear of rejection? When we can decide to make friends for the sake of having friends, even for a short time? When we can be uncomplicated and enjoy one another? When we stop caring what people think of us?

Isn’t it a pity we teach our children never to talk to strangers?
