On the sidewalk

A man standing outside the building sees his Mutual Friend Meter go off and looks up to see the friend of a friend he met last weekend at a party. As they chat the Strength Indicator between them begins to glow. Nearby, a local activist uses a Screamer Jacket to try to deliver information to passersby about her cause. In response, a pedestrian heading north activates her Hard Shell and a few minutes later a pedestrian heading south utilizes their I Need Some Space Ball. In the midst of this two friends deeply engrossed in conversation pass by without noticing. One is cold so the other removes some of their Strippable to share so that they can continue their walk and talk.
