The answer should have been "No."
The question was, "Can I join you for a few minutes?"
Not wanting to be rude, I said, "Sure!"
And so began a 15 minute conversation with an intoxicated man while waiting for lunch.
His questions were simple.
"Where do you work? Why do you do that kind of work? What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen?"
(Takes a swig of beer) "Where do you work? Why do you do that kind of work? What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen?"
After the third time of this series of questions, it was clear that he was either not able to process our answers or was looking for a more entertaining answer.
So after the third "what's the weirdest thing you've ever seen" question, Heather says,
"Pineapple on pizza."
And then our food arrived and we said our goodbyes to our new friend who was clearly confused by pineapple on pizza and wandered away.
And that's why you should never talk to strangers.
