The other day on the 850, out of the sizable number of people on the bus, I noticed two women sitting across from each other in the front of the bus, talking to each other.

Then one of them dropped something. She bent down and picked it up.

Then the other woman bent down and picked something up also. I thought it was weird that they would both drop something at the same time. I mean, I've heard about trying to see the other person's point of view in a conversation, but never that much . . . I can only assume it was in accordance with some prearranged signal that I didn't know about.

("And when the bus passes 900 South, everybody DROP SOMETHING! Okay . . .")
