365 Prompt: November 20 2017

Hello:

Hello.

That’s all they ever said.

That’s all the little Japanese school kids ever yelled out to us as we rode past them on our bicycles.

It was weird because I didn’t yell out, “Konnichi wa!” every single time I saw them or other Japanese people.

That would have been weird.

But when I mentioned this to other Japanese people they didn’t seem to think it was strange.

“Do you talk to random Japanese people and yell out when you see them?” I asked.

“Of course not!” they replied.

I rest my case.
