So Cole and I live within a block of one another. The other day I passed him on the sidewalk and WAVED AND SMILED AS I PASSED. IS THAT NOT ENOUGH? DO I HAVE TO STOP AND SAY WORDS TOO?

We live in close proximity. There will invariably be a lot of interactions like this one. I feel like I’ve set a good precedent, though, where the stop-and-talk is optional.

What’s the alternative? What if I had set a stop-and-talk precedent and the next time we passed each other it was raining and one or the other felt obligated to stop and be like, “Huh. Some rain we’re having”?

I think I did the right thing here.

What is air?
