A stranger knocks on your door, asking for directions from your home to the closest gas station (or café, or library. Your pick!). Instead of the fastest and shortest route, give him/her the one involving the most fun detours.
Whenever Blueberry and I go out, there would be people approaching us for directions.
We often wonder why they gravitate towards us.
Do we look like walking street directories? Or do we look extra approachable?
I still unsure why.. It looks like they are starting to find their way here… This sounds like the zombie apocalypse. Oh no!!
Maybe we should fortify the house.
He asked for directions to the nearest Ramen shop.
“So you cross the road, take the path in between the Pong Pong trees, then..” I rattled off.
“Huh? Pong pong trees?” he looked at me blankly.
Although the shop is 10 minutes walk from home, the route involves several shortcuts.. thus making it harder for me to explain.. and confusing for the stranger to understand.
Quickly, I don my street clothes walked him to Sanpoutei Ramen.. It was nice to able to show him my neighborhood.
I felt glad to be able to help someone today.. and he was happy to learn about the Pong Pong trees.
For Blueberry: If this happens, we should consider hiring bodyguards or fortifying our house.
