How friendly is Watertown? Are you friendly to everyone, or just to folks you know? If a stranger says hello to you, are you suspicious?
On our first trip to Scotland, my husband and I were amazed by the way people would just start talking to us at bus stops, in pubs, anywhere. It was startling at first, but after a few days, we found it really refreshing. And it wasn’t because we are American; they are just off-the-charts extroverts. How about here?
My friend Wendy started a campaign to get folks in Watertown to “Just say hi.” She printed t-shirts, got a booth at the Faire on the Square, started a blog. But she found that most people didn’t think there was a problem to solve.
What do you think? To whom are you most likely to say hi?
