I did the grocery run early this morning because the weather is FOUL (when the meteorologist says it's "going to be icky come noon," ya take her seriously.  The is NC, and August don't play).  I was nose deep in my current read ('Blue Plate Special: An Autobiography of My Appetites' by Kate Christensen).  A woman got on the bus and said "I hate to bother you.  But I am so glad to see someone else reading that!"

Cue a discussion about food and writing and women who write about food in particular.  It was a damned fine discussion, and the kind of thing I really needed in my life right now.

Then she asked me if I like volleyball.  I told her I love it, and am pretty good if the ball is allowed to hit the ground once before I try to get it back over the net (seriously, all I can do is field hockey.  Put a stick in my hand and YOU ARE GOING DOWN.  Otherwise....eh, it was nice meeting y'all.  Don't hurt me, please).

Guess who has been invited to UNC's women's volleyball practice games?

She also asked if I was "with anyone."  *blush*

August doesn't play with Texas either, it seems.

It is one of the few benefits of using public transportation. :)
