Walking across the street in Auckland is fun! Not only does the little green man actually walk (and moon walk at that!) he also counts down how long you’ve got to cross once he starts flashing!
This morning I approached the crossing and noted there were 10 seconds to go. I had this, I thought to myself and broke into a scamper. Halfway across the intersection a Maori man, approaching from the other direction, had done the same thing.
He made a funny little victory cry complete with fist pump, grinned at me and said, “We’re gonna make it hey?!”
Yes, my man. We were…and we did.
Such a simple yet intimate interaction with this stranger made my day! I smiled the whole way down to the pier to catch my ferry.
Then I caught a glimpse of my reflection and stopped. People might think I was up to something!
