In this, the Christmas season, I am reminded of an incident from a couple weeks ago…
More often than not, I am greeted with either indifference or downright animosity whilst I am rolling on around on my little motor scooter. On this particular day, however, I was sitting on a stop sign in a car (inclement weather). Out of nowhere, a random neighbor came out of his house to say hello. He walked up to the window and, I must admit, I thought to myself, “Here we go”.
I rolled down the window expecting the worst. The random guy said, “Can I buy you a cup of coffee?” I politely declined, but let him know how much I appreciated the offer.
Thank you, random neighbor guy, for reinstilling my faith in humanity (at least some of them).
