The "Hello" knod [Mar. 28th, 2006|11:47 am]

I wonder where the age gap starts... I am sitting outside of the library chillin' and an older man knoded his head at me. You know... The simple gesture when someone kinda tipps his head down at you as if to say "Hi." My response was similar, but not. I knoded my head, but it was at an upward angle as if to say "what's up." I don't know if my gesturing was polite. I kinda felt bad after the fact because my gesture was disrespectful... of so I thought. I usually make the gesture toward peers, but he was older and I don't want to seem like a dickhead and have him walk away thinking that I didn't mean it sincerely.

Do you think I was? even if I didn't know?

I think most people know the gestures of every generation. I can see in my head what both of you did and I don't see why he'd have a problem with it, unless you flicked your chin all italian-like.

Hmmm... that's a tough one. I can totally see why you would think he might get offended by that, but I would have to see you do it to be able to tell. Did u smile a little while u did it?

I think I did, but I can't be too sure... I have got to the point to where I don't want someone to think I am all gay and shit so I just keep a straight face... I know that sounds stupid, but that is just the way I am.
