Why does one talk to strangers?

As Raj Sundaramurthy had once pointed out to me… “How else does one make new friends?”

What a great friend we made this evening!

The plan was to calm down after New York driving with an Old Fashioned and a wine. Since it was Sharmila and I at a bar, it obviously meant we were going to formulate some travel plans. In fact, the specific thing that we needed to decide was whether to leave the city the next day or stay back for a day and accordingly make hotel and flight arrangements.

Well, this is me at a bar. So, we did nothing of that.

We spent the whole evening making a new friend in Jenny who was sitting next to us. Heard some of the most fascinating stories of life she has led. Got to know most of her family members too thru her stories!

Sharmila got a taste of what an evening at a bar while I am on the road feels like.

Looking forward to a “generic” (ah! well! “Jenn-Eric”) evening during our next trip to New York!
