On my walk to the metro this morning a nice young mother pushing her baby stopped me and asked if I was walking to the metro. I said yes and she asked if she could borrow my cell phone because she was walking to the metro too. I thought it a little odd, but why not. So I loaned her my phone and she called a friend and gossiped a bit while we walked to the metro together. It was a bit bizarre but quite beautiful I think. I don’t think I could imagine myself in Woodley Park walking to the metro and asking to borrow someone’s phone, or someone asking me to borrow my phone. It is like we are all one big family and of course we loan each other our phones. Whew, finally one nice thing that happened today!
