TBWCYL Day 300 - Hello

HELLO*

That is all,

Newt

*my task was to tell everyone I saw hello today. I did this as much as possible and made people in the store uncomfortable by making eye contact and saying Hi to them.

I think I would have really freaked out 95% of the DC pedestrians I passed on the way to work this morning if I gave them a howdy. Funny what an impact such a simple greeting can have.

I wish you'd made a video of their reactions. Hahaha.

Hahahaha, I do not want to try this in my neighborhood as simply walking down the street and being female is perceived as a come-on, if I said hello I'd pretty much be asking for it!

Maryx said...

Hello!!!!!!

This sort of thing can be tricky when going out for rural walks. You have to judge how many people there need to be in the vicinity before saying ‘Hello’ to someone you meet changes from being friendly to seeming strange. I dread such encounters.
