The wave is one of the things I miss about my more populated pseudo urban area. People here just do not wave when you meet them on the road. Instead you run the distinct possibility of other not so nice hand gestures.
This morning while on my run I noticed something strange. As I worked with Reba and Joe to teach them a "Ditch" command - meaning hit the ditch when a vehicle approaches - I had a couple of people give me the wave as they passed. At first I didn't think anything of it, but as car after car waved past me I began to wonder, do they always wave at me and I just not notice it, or was today different? Were people just happier today? I don't know. What I do know is I'm going to be watching for the wave as I make my miles down my busy country road.
