Douglas Coupland is one of my favorite authors. From Generation X:
“Everyone has a gripping stranger in their lives, Andy, a stranger who unwittingly possesses a bizarre hold over you. Maybe it’s the kid in cut-offs who mows your lawn or the woman wearing White Shoulders who stamps your book at the library – a stranger who, if you were to come home and find a message from them on your answering machine saying, "Drop everything. I love you. Come away with me now to Florida," you’d follow them.”
Who knows, maybe it’s someone you’ll stand next to at a sushi bar.
