Speaking of minutiae

I’m such a curious creature today, amused and delighted by the world around.

A man and his lady friend strolled past the café I am sitting in and the man was making a silly, high-pitched ‘brr, brr!’ sound, accompanied by chuckles from his lady friend. Although it resides in their own private domain within the space of the public, I couldn’t help but take part, by chuckling too – separated, safe, by a glass wall.

They noticed, eye contact was held, and smiles arose on faces. If it weren’t for the glass it would seem intrusive, uncomfortable – too close.

But it was fine, and I think they must have delighted in that fleeting, shared experience just as I did.
