Friday afternoon, on the way home. Tired. Therefore happy when the tram arrived quickly.
I got in and while trying to keep myself next to the door to be ready to get off at the next stop, I smiled to a woman that looked familiar to me. “Hello”, I said and a moment later I realized that I actually don’t know her and felt a bit embarrassed of the situation.
She started talking to me. A bit fast and, for a while, I couldn’t follow her. Slowly the words became clearer: she was saying that was nice of me to say hello. And that’s ok.
She admired my matching hat and scarf. The only thing came to my mind instead of saying a simple “Thank you” was that the gloves are actually not matching.
I smiled again to the thought.
“No, I didn’t knit them”, I answered further.
“You should try, its easy”, she told me.
“Yes, maybe I will”.
“Schönes Tag noch”, she said while me getting off the tram I was smiling still.
