The last time I took a bus to Olympia, the entire way between Tacoma and Olympia, I was sat next to a very talkative man. Y’all! He had so much to say about his neighbor’s herpes. On and on and on.
Anyway, people complain about the Seattle freeze, and there was recently some discussion about it on Twitter. But I love it. It is a lovely combination of Nordic stoicism and big city life. Small talk is great but not with randos. I love not talking to you. I know that it isn’t for everyone, but I appreciate it so hard.
