When People Surprise Me
I was surprised by people before. They suddenly smile at me or I might receive a pleasant comment from otherwise distant people. I threw a question to some random duo manning the checker box at the town border. They usually charge large trucks for use of the road. It might be a slow day though. I asked them if I could throw some sacks of discarded sand, soil, rocks and refuse at an adjacent and vacant lot next to them. Next thing I know they were volunteering to do it themselves. I had to smile hard. It's a very beautiful day.
