While I was driving back to work after my lunch break today (Tuesday), I was sitting at a red light enjoying having my car windows down and waiting for the light to turn green. That’s when I hear a man say “Hey! I hope you have a really nice day!” I looked over at the guy in the minivan next to me and he gave me a gentle smile.
Now, I know what some of you are thinking… HE’S HITTING ON ME!! How creepy! Right?? Well, I can usually tell when someone is hitting on me and this was not like that. It was so sincere and nice, and you know what? It really made my day. I said ‘Thank you! You too!” and then the light turned green and we went on our way. Just 2 seconds out of his day completely MADE mine. Next time you walk by someone, or are sitting at a red light with your windows down, maybe try saying one simple word that could put a smile on their face for the rest of the day…”Hi!”
