This is a thematic well I return to frequently, and I do so for a reason: Stranger interactions—the friendly, happy-type ones, anyway—rock. I know it’s easy, and often right, to mock that whole, ‘A stranger is just a friend I haven’t met yet’, sentiment Billy Connoly-style, but it can also often be true. Or if not a friend, then something that can be even more magical: A fleeting, friendly interaction that appears just at the right time and does not wear out its welcome. I love that sh*t. Gives life a bit of magic. Sometimes you really need that. Reddit touched on this subject the other day when it asked the question: ‘What’s your wholesome experience with a stranger?’ You can check out the full thread here, but below are some highlights:
