Before arriving at my place for dinner, my friend Jasmine went to the liquor store across the street from where I live to buy a bottle of wine.
At the cash register the man asked for $15.07 – an odd amount I know but New York tax can do that. She put $20 on the counter and picking it up he said,
“Do you have 7 cents?”
“No, I am sorry I don’t” my friend answered
“That’s strange” he replied looking at her
“Why is that?” she inquired
“Because old ladies always have pennies”
Jasmine gasped and after restraining herself from slapping him, she said,
“Don’t YOU worry – one day you will be old too! And you are not far away from it.” (she guessed he was about 50.)
Believe me we really needed that bottle of wine to drown and forget his disrespectful words.
And never forget – A Smile Changes Everything

Wow, this piece of writing is nice, my sister is analyzing such things, therefore I am going
to inform her.
I have a question. What’s a quick fix for starting to feel blue? I’d like to catch it before it goes on the descent.
Moody in Manhattan
First stop being MOODY – and you stop being moody by looking around you and seeing how lucky you are for who you are and what you have – then – you have a glass of wine, kick off your shoes and watch a silly movie – or you go to a bar and see if you can find a guy who is not hypnotized by his iPhone and might talk to you………by the way there are no quick fixes in life – it’s all about putting one foot in front of the other- good luck
