……..belong to the Young and Restless!
Visiting my bank yesterday a lady came up to Michelle’s desk, the bank clerk who took care of me and said, “Sorry to interrupt, just wanted to wish you a Happy Easter.”
While we chit chatted I looked at the lady. She was about sixty, of medium height. She wore a bulky sweater which, even for her not slim silhouette, was much too large, and a pair of jeans with more rips and holes than was flattering for her legs.
I don’t know if she didn’t feel comfortable in her jeans, or if she had noticed me looking at her, but she suddenly said, ” I’m going out to buy some clothes now” and before I could stop myself I said laughingly, “You might need some.”
No, she wasn’t offended, she was a good sport and pointing to her jeans explained, “I just wanted to be a fashionista.”
And getting out my book Getting Over Growing Older I made another sale.
And always remember …a smile changes everything.
