John talked with an acquaintance while he waited for the clerk to catch his eye. On his way out, he stopped to chat with a friend who was just coming into the store. On his way back to the office he met a girl who he had been introduced to the other night. They talked for a short while, and then John continued his trip back to the office.
John is an introvert. After work, John left the office alone. Leaving the office, he started on his long walk home. The street was brilliantly filled with sunshine. John walked down the street on the shady side. Coming down the street towards him, he saw the pretty girl whom he had met on the previous evening. John crossed the street and entered a bar. The bar was crowded with people, and he noticed a few familiar faces. John waited quietly until the bartender caught his eye and then gave his order. Taking his drink, he sat down at a side table. When he had finished his drink he went home.
