at night

“Y’all have a good night,” I sat in a casual, comforting, and somewhat raspy and deep, womanly voice.

“You, too… be safe,” they both respond, accompanied by a casual wave, a smile, and a dip of the head by both of them.

This happens as I walk out of the school, close to 10pm, after the theatre production.  These two men are the police officers on duty.

I love this…. these kinds of interactions.  The men would have been ignored in so many other places I have lived and visited.  They are sometimes ignored by people here.  But it is also normal for that little interaction to take place, especially around here.  

Yes, I love this, I think to myself with a smile, as I walk to the car.  I love living here.  I love the South.
