A Show of Hands: Wave

Whether friendly, flirty, enthusiastic, angry, or helpful, a wave can be the perfect way to get someone’s attention.  My favorite wave is the unsolicited ‘baby wave’ that usually occurs in the line at my grocery store.  Mom is busy transferring groceries from her cart to the conveyer belt.  Baby is bored.  Baby spots me—also bored.  Baby waves.  I wave back. This continues until Baby tries to get Mom’s attention to show off her new friend.  Mom turns around.  I look away, pretending that the entire exchange never happened.  Mom goes back to the task at hand.  Baby waves.  I wave back.  It’s a little juvenile, but it’s fun, and it keeps one baby’s and one shopper’s boredom at bay.
