“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.
