I'm waiting for an oil change in this little lobby with other folks who are waiting and this guy walks in to wait and just starts talking to everyone. Just starting with stuff about the storm in New York and his family out there. Now he's in a conversation with this kid who works in plane manufacturing about the importance of joining the union. Talking about Right to Work states and stuff.
I've always been fascinated by folks who can do that. I'm quiet and shy, feel awkward when I'm saying anything to anyone. I have no idea how to talk to people I'm close to. I've had friends like this and I'm in awe of it every time. How do you go out to get a bottle from the liquor store and come home with an invitation to a bbq? How do you go out for an oil change and end up convincing someone to join a union?
I'm hella jealous.
