Stranger Log – Brevity & Wit

Current mood: Space, man
Have a friendly conversation with a random stranger every day. It’s an apple a day for the city.

A quiet mod girl is sitting on a bench in the Forest Hill station. She has a tin lunchbox covered with sitcom heroes from my childhood. The lunchbox is about as old as she is.
‘Where did you get that lunchbox?’ I inquire.
‘At a garage sale.’
‘I haven’t seen Mork and Mindy in a long time.’
‘It hasn’t been on for a long time.’
