Walking home after dropping Joe off at school, I spot another woman (eleven year old girl trapped in woman’s body?) up the street, who looks like someone I know:

Me: (like she’s my best friend from middle school): HIIII!!!

Her (lighting up, like I’m her cousin or her sister): HIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I get closer. I realize I don’t know her, at all.

Me: Oh, sorry! I thought you were someone else!

Her: (cheerily) Oh, that’s okay!

Me: HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Her: YOU TOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
