Question of the Day

Thumbs up or down?

Have you hitchhiked or picked up a hitchhiker?

Me: No, never hitchhiked. I have only picked up a hitchhiker once. I was driving through Quebec near Montreal. It was raining, and I saw this teenager on the side of the road looking miserable, so I stopped for him. When I asked him where he wanted to go, he replied in French, “I don’t speak English.” My French is marginal, so I responded, “¿Hablas español?” He laughed and replied in perfect English, “No, I don’t.” He rode with me for about twenty miles and we had a nice chat.
