Talk to Strangers

I have a social challenge for you.  This week, at least one time, ask a stranger a question about him or herself.  I don’t care what the question is, as long as it’s not offensive or stalker-like.  Also, I don’t care where you do it: while walking your dog, at your local coffee shop, at Walmart…wait.  Heavens no!  Don’t go to Walmart, especially not for this mission. Oh, and you probably don’t want to do this in a public bathroom either. But at the supermarket, a restaurant, a bookstore, a florist’s shop, that sort of place.  And don’t be too selective either.  Be safe, but not picky. Maybe you don’t normally talk to anyone over the age of fifty.  Unless he’s eating paint chips or talking to himself or paint chips, give it a try. You just need opportunity.  Maybe a question like, “Wow, where’d you get that awesome hat?”

Why am I issuing such a challenge? You already know yourself, but  you may never get another chance to know this person’s story. It could be interesting, life-changing even, or just make her or him feel special for a moment during a bad day. There are 7 billion people in this world.  How many do you know?
