This morning, after I grabbed coffee, cause I was up entirely too late last night with a conference call, I stopped to get a sleeve at the little stand with straws and sugar. Despite the alarming indications from the news that the temperatures would soar to the 80’s today, a scalding cup of coffee sounded like a wonderful idea. A man stopped at the stand and looked intently at me as he uttered, “Good Morning, how are you?.” I smiled back, it was entirely too early to be surly, and returned a, “I’m well, how are you?” All the while staring into my eyes he returned with, “Well. You have a beautiful smile. You’re a beautiful lady.”
Now, I have to say, that after the awkward eye lock ended, I reflected to find myself smiling at the compliment and thanking the man.
Good start to Wednesday.
