I berra be quick to respond

So, I don't like being caught unawares. I love surprises but when I walk into the bathroom and meet someone early mor-mor, I get scared for half of a second. To get a clearer picture, if I am reading a book and someone hovers above me suddenly, I skip a heartbeat and slightly discombobulated. Albeit, I am not agoraphobic, I even fancy dark places.

Before I digress, I was walking back from the gym yesterday, while thinking about what to have for din-din, lost in my solitary world. Then, two guys walked past me. One of them, guy A, said something towards my direction. I just smiled but didnt reply becos I wasnt paying attn to them and didn't get what he said. This is the conversation that ensued immediately between the guys.

Guy A: That's why I like folks in the South. People up here are not even friendly.
Guy B: Maybe she didn't.... blah blah
And their voices trailed off.

What GuyA said is substantially true, when I went to the South, strangers seemed very amiable but in the North, OYO (on your own) is the order of the day.
The main point of the gist is that, I was still trying to replay what he said cos it was muffled.
I think it was, "Out for a stroll?"
At least, I smiled back and did not want to reply with some awkward response until I knew what he said. I may have been [unconsciously] shy, remember my 'Thank You post". But I was so famished and was only thinking about food then. Funny enough, I had bread, honey and seasoned chicken for Dinner.

PS: I may be at six flags this wkend. Haha, what can [a grown-up-looking someborri] like me do there?
Update: I went, the experience was friggin' "nuclear" [culled from CC's vocab]. Watch out for the next post

What am I doing now:
Smiling at the thought of my deposited pay-check. TGIF
