Some friends and I were walking home after dinner, and we were stopped by a group of strangers.  They wanted us to judge their pumpkin carving contest.  This is not the ordinary behavior of strangers, and it make me think about strangers in general. 

Around here, strangers usually want loose change or some kind of show of political support.  Actually...no, usually strangers don't want anything.  They just keep quiet and stay to themselves.  I think in most big cities, strangers just stay strange, but you can find 'em wherever you go.  They're everywhere, and unless you're the dude offering free hugs, you're probably not going to have a lot of personal contact with them, but you know they're out there, filling up all the empty spaces in the world you don't and can't.  Without them, you probably couldn't live in the little bubble you do, and the world would be peopled with your select group of friends, enemies, and acquaintances.  Personally, I think it'd get kinda boring and lonely, your pool of potential interactions so severely limited, but I also think Spam and eggs taste good for breakfast, so that may damage my credibility a bit.  But I still care about what you think.  Strangers and friends alike, I really do want to know:

"Are strangers closer to a breadbox or the concept of justice?"

maybe they contain bread, maybe they are empty. Maybe they have moldy bread.

maybe the stranger will ask you for money, maybe they are a bum. IT'S A MYSTERY!!!
