I'm generally not one to talk up strangers in grocery store check-out lines, but there was something about our exchange of smiles and gazes around the store that compelled me to check out with you. Watching you shudder, then laugh was the perfect reaction to me describing my art. I shouldn't have let you leave without my number. Here's hoping we'll meet again at our favourite north end grocer.

I want to shout out the driver of the 3 who always stops for people when they’re running to catch his bus. You’ve saved my roommate and I from being late for work numerous times, and I’m sure there are others who can say the same! In all my years of being a Halifax Transit passenger, he’s the only one I’ve seen do this, which is why I’ve named him the best bus driver in HRM. Love!

It was a Saturday at Pete’s in the afternoon, and I was awkwardly holding a bag of nuts and talking to my friend. You have long red hair and you were wearing a cream-coloured coat. You walked by, and we shared a smile, and a little laugh. I think you’re super-beautiful. I’m the woman with short curly brown hair and glasses.

You just trolled one of Gordon Ramsey's cooking videos while eating a Bacon Dipper cracker off the floor.

To the coffee shop manager with the tattoos and pony tail: You're just great! You always find a way to brighten up my often-dull days with a smile or secret treat. Big Love!

A couple of weeks ago you were walking by Garden Food Bar and smiled at a dorky trans-girl with big glasses and long hair. You were wearing a long jacket and had a beautiful smile. I just wanted to say thank you, you pulled me out of a bit of depression and gave me butterflies in my stomach.

Hey Mr. Postman: We stopped and talked two summers in a row on the steps to the beach. You had lots of time to spend there because of an injury. How about meeting again on Monday, September 23, rain or shine around 4pm?

To the lesbian couple holding hands on Quinpool Road last Friday: I was walking to school and passed you on the sidewalk. As a closeted teenager, seeing you made acceptance feel like a reality.

Thank you, kind stranger, for picking up my wayward house key and tying it to a light post on Windsor Street the other day! There were only a couple of places it could have been dropped, so I was worried someone had kept it for evil. Thank you <3

Hey, girl from the Common show. I would have called it sexual assault. There's no consent in a power imbalance like that. Hopefully you interpreted it differently. —MeToo
