Waving HeyMay 26, 2010 at 6:27 AM | Posted in Geography, Relationships | 3 Comments
I was running slowly through the streets of Fairhope, Alabama (across the bay from Mobile) and I was reminded of the southern way of waving “hey” as they drive by. Whether you are walking, running or driving slowly, you get the friendly wave.
It is, I think, a way of saying a number of things: I see you, I’m glad I see you, everything’s OK but if you need some help, let me know.
Now, I don’t know if all this is true but it’s the way I want to think of it.
