TP365/Year 10:: Connections – Startled

1 Nov

Today’s post is dedicated to strangers… those who accidentally startle you.

Or me.

Because that’s what happened at the grocery store tonight… as I was browsing the prepared food aisle at Whole Foods and deep into both thought and a conversation on my earbuds, a stranger asked me a question from behind.

It was so unexpected that I was startled.

I jumped.

Like a good few inches off the ground.

Then she jumped back too because my surprise screech startled her.

She apologized profusely. So did I.

Then we both laughed out loud hysterically.

It was two strangers, connected by laughter and the knee-jerk reaction of being startled.

What an amazing connection between strangers… who were both hungry!

More tomorrow,
Jamie
