Nods

I had two great nods yesterday:

1. Skateboarding downhill and home from work a van came up behind me. I pulled into the non-existent ‘bike lane’ to let him pass. It was taking awhile and I got a little irritated, as the van passed I expected somebody unhappy or scared, or scolding. Instead the middle-aged guy driving looked over at me, and gave me that smile and nod dudes give each other.

2. While driving lostedly in the unfamiliar neighborhood of Schaerbeek I stopped to let a young couple cross the street. She in burka, he in jeans and sweater. They crossed in front of me carrying on their way, until the guy gave a look over his shoulder to give me that smile and nod dudes give each other.
