I know my neighbor is not a morning person, but I strive to make her smile anyway. She’s a divorcee and most of the time she’s pretty grumpy, but that doesn’t hinder my cause. I was watering my flowers this morning and she came out of the house on her way to work.
Me: “Good morning, neighbor!” *smiles and waves*
Neighbor: *Glares at me and groans*
Me: “You look nice today.”
Neighbor: *arches upper lip and groans again as she heads for her car*
Me: “I’ll miss you while you’re gone.”
Neighbor: *pauses briefly, shakes her head and climbs into her car*
Me: “I love you!” (And to clarify, I didn’t just say ‘I love you’, I gave her the longing expression with it, like I can’t live another moment without her. The expression is what sells it.)
Neighbor: *stares at me awkwardly and then erupts in laughter* “You are crazy, girl.”
Me: *waves again* “Have a nice day!”
Yeah, I may be a little crazy but I got her to smile. 🙂 Everyone deserves a smile.
Happy Friday, friends! Have a fabulous weekend.
