“Look, man, I don’t have time for this…” the user interrupts before trying to walk away.
Last July, I was enjoying my summer holidays in Halkidiki, Greece, with my wife and kids and another family — very good friends of ours. We rented a minivan and spent 10 days touring around the beautiful beaches of Sithonia peninsula, one beach per day.
One evening, while taking a walk along the busy streets of Nikiti, where our hotel was based, we overheard two servers anxiously discussing a freak storm coming that night. …
At the end of this past August, Team USA and Australia were engaged in a series of friendly basketball matches in Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, to prepare themselves for the World Cup 2019 in China. I was scrolling on Instagram, and by the first glance of the first match’s highlights, it was like I was hit by lightning.
