Me (enthusiastically): ‘Look at that innovative solution on the beer crate – a handle in the middle! I cannot recall it from earlier, there were handles only on the 2 sides..’
My husband (mutually enthusiastic): ‘Indeed! Isn’t technological revolution wonderful! How easier life has become for single alcoholists!’
We have an acquaintance – a kind lady in her 60s, she leads a very sporty life, and cares about her appearance in every respect – of which she is rather proud.
At this moment she is trying to chitchat with our little son.
Sporty Lady (sending an encouraging smile): ‘And, Walter, can you guess how old I am?’
Walter (carefully studying her before giving an answer): ’80?’
Walter is a charmeur.
I already travelled with this gentleman one morning last week, too – I recognise the shoes and coat.
..And once it has turned this way, I have just woken him up before we got to Brussels-North railway station, where I know he needs to get off.
He was so happy & grateful. We wished each other a nice day, hoping to meet also next time.
And studies dare to say that commuting has a negative impact on your social network..
