When I got on the subway this morning, I overhead a woman introduce herself to a man standing close by. Apparently they has begun chatting on the platform.
She had already met her quota: speak to at least one stranger every day.
She probably didn’t know she was supposed to. But studies show that if you do, both you and the stranger will feel better.
Shhhhhhhiiiiiitttttt….we Southerners have known that all along.
