12th February 2017 – Delightful Americans & ‘fist-bumps’

People here are completely delightful and full of surprises. Even going to the supermarket is an adventure. I just reached the end of my shop and was thanking the lady serving me and putting my money away and she held out her closed hand, I thought initially to give me something… but no, I didn’t need anything… eventually I figured out she was waiting to give me a ‘fist-bump’. It is so far from my imaginings that an older lady in the supermarket might want to ‘fist-bump’ me …over anything at all… it took me an uncomfortably long moment to figure out the appropriate way to respond!! XD Left me smiling for the rest of the day…
