I smile at everyone as I pass them. If you smile back I might even say hello. Particularly with elderly people, I have had some fantastic interactions. Today at the University Hospital it was no exception.
I am standing outside waiting for the valet to return my car and an elderly gentleman is sitting at a table waiting as well. I greet him, and he asks how my day is. I tell him how happy I am it isn't a hundred degrees anymore and smile so big my face hurts a little.
We wait in silence a bit longer but when his vehicle arrives, he creeks out of his seat and hunches over to me in a two step shuffle. He gets really close, puts his hand on my arm and while squeezing it tenderly he says to me "If I wasn't married I'd make your day so much better."
I clasp his hand in thanks as I laugh so loudly it echoed all the way up the mountain over Huntsman. He did make my day so much better. He did.
