Let’s say you’re walking down main street, (in a small town, this is typically the only street that has a sidewalk), and there are people coming toward you. What should you do? Now in the city, you’d fix your eyes on the cement and pretend they don’t exists, but not in a small town. Look them in the eye and wave. Most will shake your hand and want to know your name, and where you’re from. Don’t consider this an interrogation. It’s called being friendly, something we city folks don’t see too often.
