Today at the Grocer…

I was walking down the frozen aisle and saw a little girl, oh, 3 or so, wearing 5 or 6 headbands at one time.  I thought it bold, and the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that should be rewarded with some verbal affirmation.  And so this:

Me: I love your headbands; they’re totally working.

Her (scowling): You’re a boy.

Me (pleased): Thank you.

*Fin*

And the last customer interaction of the day:

Eli and an older gentleman go for the same opening in an otherwise very crowded aisle. Both of us stop, to allow the other to pass.

Older Gentleman: Oh, excuse me miss, I mean sir.

Me (walking through the opening): No problem.

*Fin*

So there you have it: children and the elderly, per usual, get it.

Be nice to yourselves,
Your Pal Eli
