simple things

the other week I had a friend

she grew up in a major city, impoverished

until now she had taken public transportation and biked everywhere

she saved up and bought her first car, a used car

in 29 years of life she had never seen an oil change or refill

so she asked me to show her how to replenish oil if her tank was low

so she drove to my house and I showed her

it was a fun time making fun of her but also catching up

these little things

we take for granted

not everyone knows…or grew up knowing….
