Who was the first person you encountered today? Write about him or her.
“Encounter” … an unexpected experience … a confrontation … a chance meeting with …
It is almost 2 pm today and I have yet to encounter anyone.
I have seen people in a parking lot … spoken with cashier at a checkout line … even nodded to a butcher as he was completing his price reductions for the morning customers. But according to the definition of encounter … a meeting between two people has to be unexpected, confrontational, or a chance meeting with a known friend.
None of these things happened today.
I will soon have a friend from years back visit for the holidays… but this visit has been planned weeks in advance. (And I certainly hope it is not confrontational?)
I have had no encounters today.
It would be great to have a visit from friends for the holidays that is unplanned? Not since I cannot ‘know’ about a chance encounter… I therefore cannot write about such hoped for encounter…
I guess the luckiest person today is ME. I am having a completely personal “me” day. Those are very nice to have.
