It’s a rainy day.
A guy sees girl he’s admired for a long time, but never got an opportunity to talk to.
She seems to be waiting for the rain to stop. She’s looking across the road.
He sees a man holding an umbrella and approaches him. They can be seen talking. They disappear behind a wall. The man can be seen in the distance running in the rain towards his car.
Oh my, what’s this? He has made an umbrella magically appear in his suitcase!
(“In case of rainy days…” he says.)
He walks up to her.
“You know why the chicken crossed the road?”
She looks surprised, and a little amused.
Perhaps she has an interest in him, too.
“No. Why did the chicken cross the road?”
“To get to the other side!” he replies.
She smiles. Goddamnit, she smiles.
“You want to be a chicken?” he asks.
“What?” she asks.
“You want to cross the road?” he asks again.
She smiles, gives out a small laugh. “Yes. Yes, I do.”
“Let’s be chickens together then, shall we?” At which point he opens up his umbrella, and they cross.
I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ in the MBTI.
