1. Receiving a free coffee drink. I thoroughly enjoyed my decaf soy latte; mmmm.
2. Seeing two nuns shopping. It’s a scene I don’t witness every day, and it definitely made me pause – then smile. (Can you tell I didn’t go to Catholic school?) 😉
3. As I approached a shopping cart, a small girl sitting in the front section waited for me to get within arm’s length – then growled at me with an empassioned “ROAR!”. Not one to be intimidated (or self-conscious), I reflexively responded with a similarly assertive “ROAR!”. I clearly caught the little girl by surprise, because she paused for a second – then LAUGHED one of those fantastic little kid belly laughs. Clearly she wasn’t expecting an adult to roar at her, but the surprise turn of events made her day – and mine.
