So, I'm all set to walk to school today. Right at the corner where my apartment building is, a car stopped at a red light honks. I look over and a woman is waving me over to get in the car. Without my glasses on, I can barely see four feet in front of me these days. To me, she sort of looked like someone I work with. I hop in and she says, “Hey, I’ll give you a ride to school!” (I was wearing my college lanyard.)
We exchanged pleasantries and still thinking she’s my co-irker, I said, “Hey, you look great today! So well-rested!” "Uh, thanks." That was the moment when I realized I have NO idea who she is. She then introduces herself (she goes to the same school I do, although we don’t know each other). I stared at her in awkward silence until things got weird, then I mumbled my name. Smooooth.
The rest of the ride was uneventful…I just tried to play it off like I knew who she was.
So, yeah. I got into a stranger’s car today.
