Short Story: Part II

"What a terrible way to start a family!" she said loudly as Maria was running down the path. Maria found herself running often these days. Actually, running had been one of her favorite past times for the last 6 years or so. So why was this random lady, who Maria had never seen, giving her free advice about a matter as important as starting a family? Does she know that we want to start having children? Maria thought. Should I not be running? She couldn't help but hold the gaze of the unknown woman as Maria continued her jog. Then, the unknown woman smiled at Maria and turned away--most likely convinced that she had done her duty to help the world be a better place. It was only then that Maria noticed the unknown woman pull her hair back to reveal her blue tooth phone.

Haha, I HATE when people are talking on their bluetooth! I get why people have them...but I still think they're unnecessary! It makes for some very awkward times I think...
