Yesterday and today I got the same quote on my Starbuck’s cup. (And yes, I need to get a reusable cup so I stop throwing cups away everyday.)
I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you say, “Hi.” They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.
– Augusten Burroughs
I think this is a sign. I’m going to keep this close in my mind from now on. Maybe I’ll make a new friend.
