I was on my way home when I saw this teenager walking to the bus stop in our village. She was about to take an hour-long bus ride to meet her friends at the American high school for a basketball game, but I offered to drive her instead.
We turned those extra 45 minutes into a mini-shopping spree for some beauty products, and are now hanging out in the car, charging her phone, waiting for the game to start while devouring the cookies we impulse-purchased from some Girl Scouts.
Totally unplanned encounter. Best way to end the work week.
