I grew up on a farm near a town with the population of 300 (limited cell phone service, pizza delivery not an option, rural) in one of the least populated states. I traveled east to go to college and then moved to Minneapolis, MN. I could always tell I was getting closer to where I grew up as you would meet fewer and fewer cars and those driving the cars would wave. I was inspired by my neighbors who both give big waves when you meet them. It makes me smile every time! I classify as a “The Double Whammy” waver, I have no reason to vocally say hello, but I do. My mom does “The Nod”, I try to explain that when driving down a road no one can see your head nod 🙂 A small connection between people who happen to be in the same place at the same time.
