I recently had a very heartwarming experience with a stranger that led to a very saddening realization of how distant we are from everyone these days. I was browsing some clothing in a store when a guy a few years older than me stood nearby, also looking at the clothing in front of me. Rather than pretend I wasn’t there and continue shopping, like most people do nowadays, he began to make casual conversation and introduced himself as Brandon, a native to the Houston area. He and I spoke about the current situation of the pandemic and how it’s affected our schooling and daily life, and although the conversation didn’t last more than a few minutes, I felt more connected to this random guy than I do to many people in my own community just down the street. Maybe it’s my fault for “not bothering” to talk to people when I’m going around town, or maybe if I tried nobody would stop to listen and carry on a conversation anyway, but thinking back on my encounter with Brandon, I realized how sad it is that a casual conversation between two strangers has become so uncommon.
