Missed opportunity?

Albert Einstein said, "In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."

I don't think Albert had trouble making friends and influencing people.

Time for an update on Mr. Immuned. Actually there is no update. Thursday & Friday he wasn't at the bus stop or on the bus. So I guess I'll have to chalk this one up to another missed opportunity. But I no longer feel like my smile needs validation.

As I arrived at the bus stop on Friday, I immediately noticed that Mr. Immuned was not in sight. I have to admit to being quite disappointed. Until the bus actually pulled up, I didn't give up hope. There must have been a look on my face I wasn't aware of because the man that was at the bus stop asked me if I was okay. I assured him I was then I smiled. And guess what? He smiled back.

For the next few stops we talked about all sorts of things and every time I smiled, he smiled back. My confidence, such as it is, was beginning to be restored. When he got off the bus he made a point to stop and shake my hand. He also told me he hoped he would see me on the bus again. I was flattered.

So when I go back to work on Tuesday, if Mr. Immuned is at the bus stop, I won't feel quite so bad if he doesn't smile at me. After all he's just one man and it's his loss, right?

BTW, this is where all of you agree with me. :P

Smile and the world smiles with you......frown, and all you get is a headache! LOL Or something like that!

And how nice that the man shook your hand! Seems like you have a new bus friend to while away the ride! Sure will make it easier not to see how crazy the drivers on the road are! :)

Yeah, I make it a point not to watch. People around here drive like maniacs. And that's when they're not late for work. :P

*shudders* I can only imagine. I love it when they turn right from the left hand lane, and left from the right hand lane, all because they aren't paying attention to where they are. Too busy yakking on their cell phones. And what is it with the women putting their makeup on while driving? I HATE us women a bad a name! Morons! LOL

Every time I see a woman putting on her makeup in the car I have this urge to tap the back of her car just as she's putting on her mascara. :D

Hi Princess. Thanks for stopping by.

I agree with you.

That's what I was supposed to say, right?

Princess LadyBug said...

Yes, Danny. You did wonderfully. And thank you for stopping by. :)
