I happened to be standing by my favorite light location and saw Jill and Mark heading my way. So I nonchalantly backed up a few paces, walked forward, and just 'happened' to meet them at my spot. Each carried some purchased packages, and neither was interested in the upcoming motorcycle rally. Jill looked me squarely in the eye – I'm 6' 1”. When I made my request, each shrugged and said OK.
