The Unusual Introduction

You have no idea in the world how someone is going to present themselves to you. It's all about the introduction. That becomes the problem. You have no idea what type of introduction they are going to give to you. It can end up nice or ignorant. In my case, it turned out ignorant and unusual.

But then again, what else is new about my life.

One day, I was walking over to this convention center that I was volunteering at for the day. I have been volunteering there for over two years now and it still feels fresh and new everyday. You have to be an extremely tough skin and patient person to be able to handle dealing with a large group of kids. I have never once cracked. Those kids can try but it's just not going to happen.

I was right around the corner from the center when I saw this jeep heading my way. Inside, there was a woman that spotted me walking towards the corner. I don't know what got into her, but it led to hear turning the music on high, and dancing like she lost her mind. That was seemingly her way of introducing herself.

I looked up after hearing loud music and I saw the jeep heading my way. I then saw the woman riding the car. I didn't want to be rude. So I decided to wave at her once the jeep was right next to me.

The car stopped and she waved back at me. Then she decided to give me the correct introduction.

She put both of her hands tight on the wheel. Then she raised her leg high in the car. She put her foot and drove off, screaming to the top of her lungs. It was a freaky and unusual way to see this woman for the first time.

Once she drove away, all I said was "Nice to meet you too."
