Smile!
« on: January 10, 2011, 11:40:09 PM »
Driving down the road, I see quite a few people with signs asking for handouts. I'm accustomed to seeing them now.

But, today, there was a man with a sign that said, in big letters, "SMILE!"

He waved the sign and gave me a big smile himself as I drove by. I couldn't help but smile back - it was so infectious!

I know some people don't like to be told to smile, but this wasn't offensive. It really was impossible not to smile back! And, it really showed how a smile from someone can make another person's day and put a smile on their face, too.

It was so great!

It also made me smile, because today was my birthday, so it was like a special "happy birthday" to me. :)

That's sweet :)

I don't think I'd mind something like that- it's obviously not aimed at singling me out for my expression (I hate when people tell me to smile when I'm not because something's going on...)

It actually reminded me of the "Hug" Campaign. And, I have to also say that the guy was kinda cute! :D
