My first interaction that I observed was between a two girls. They seemed to be best friends. The two girls were talking about what their weekend plans were. They must have been very close friends because their conversations flowed very well. They rarely had moments of silence. The actors had a strong understanding of how the other person thought even without saying anything. For example: They would both look a situation and then look back at each other smirking and laughed without saying anything.

I guess they were excited for their game quickly approaching. The boys were of different races. Some were African American and others were Caucasian but they had no problem communicating with each other. They looked as if they had known each other for a while or because of they were teammates they must have known each other very well.
