I’m not a very outgoing person. I mean I can be funny and the life of the party with people I know but with strangers I’m very quiet and shy. A few glasses of wine has been known to make me more outgoing but that’s the exception rather than the rule.
Look at this lady in the picture behind us–my daughter calls this photo bombing. This so unexpected and funny. I smile each time I see her in my picture. I don’t know who she is but she is making me laugh!
I am by nature someone who likes routine and things in their place so by rights this stranger in my picture should bother me but it doesn’t. One of the mom’s I knew when my son was in second grade told me a story about how when she was new in town every day this crossing guard would smile and wave at her. She said she expected that he did that to everyone but as she knew no one in town that little gesture just made her feel a little better about moving to some place unfamiliar.
Have you ever had something unexpected just make you smile?
