as i was pulling out of my driveway - 7:30 in the damn frigid morning - i saw someone walking in the street. and i did a double take, because it was a girl with gorgeous long dreads. on instinct, before i had time to talk myself out of it (i'm a very shy person generally), i pulled up next to her and rolled down the window and called out, "hey, i love your dreads. they're beautiful." she smiled and came over to talk to me, and i ended up giving her a ride across town, because i was going that direction anyway. we talked about dreads and music, and it was just... really awesome. we agreed that we hoped to see each other around again, and i dropped her off and went to school.
it wouldn't be such a big deal to me, but i never do stuff like that. and it turned out to be such a good experience... it really made my day.
