So how did it ago?
It was exhausting, interesting and a lot of connecting. There were moments where I thought, should I talk? Am I too much? Should I leave them alone? You can judge by first impressions just as they get into the car what the experience will be. I’ve decided to document my Uber friends as numbers. Let’s see how long this lasts for.
#1 Carl – City to Port Melbourne
Dad. Married to a Twin. Two sons and proud of them. Going to see brother inlaw.
When I first got the pop up, it was really felt like a first date experience. I got so giddy and excited and talked way too much. For my first Cherry Pop it was a good experience.
#2. Two men. Port Melbourne to City
Going from meeting to meeting. Enterprise business. Didn’t chat much. One follows the Blues for the colour.
Finished yr 12. Going to legal firm for work. Travelled to Florence and USA. My first picture.
#4. Luemma. Brunswick to Collingwood
Yellow. Bigger PomPoms. Gorgeous. Personality. Florist.
When you meet someone and you want them to stay in the car with you forever!
#5 Rachel – Melb to Airport
TV screen writer. Shock Horror. Going to Sydney and Cairnes for the break. Phi and Me webseries. She asked for my card and my heart stopped.
#6 Plumber – Essendon to Docklands
Gf Graduations. Nice guy. Chilled out.
I took a detour and it kinda paid off.
