She said, "Hey, do you need any help or anything?"
I shook my head.
She replied, "Is someone with you?"
She said, "Okay then, my name is Molly. I've seen you around and though I'd introduce myself. What's your name?"
We then had a brief few second of me thinking "Oh crap, I can't answer" until my aide came down and said, oh this is Eva the dogwalker.
The juxtaposition between this exchange and the one I had a few weeks ago is enormous. Not only did she listen to me when I nodded and shook my head, she proceeded to have a normal conversation with me. Wow!!!
