Random is a highly overused word
Sounded like kids playing, and I live in a relatively quiet little neighbourhood. But it's 2 am so I opened the front door to inspect
Humans, around my age, running around setting up what looked like a camp site. They had chairs, a cooler full of booze and food, a propane stove and one of them had set up my sprinkler to my hose…
I'm confused, and wander out to ask what is the story behind this.
They are just returning from a camping trip, and their car had broken down just by my house. It was a nice night and they were all so hungover, they didn't want to deal with cabs, or figuring out where they were at all.
…On my lawn. They were having a lawn party, and didn't even invite me!
I went inside and thought out calling the cops, or calling some friends to come stay with me, lest they try to break in, but they seemed genuine, were definitely confused tourists, and just plain old down on your luck people.
When one of them saw the door open and heard me, he asked me in a defeated voice if I would prefer they just leave, that they hadn't meant to intrude and were just as confused as I was. He asked if Id maybe like a beer or a hot dog.
And now I have 6 new friends, from all over the world. One of the strangest and best experiences of my life.
Go hug a stranger!
