Nice Lady

Happy Friday. Nothing much….other than today I was leaving the gym after a workout and the wind was blowing like mad. At a stoplight, the wind blew over one of those big orange barrels and rolled it into the inside lane. A lady pulled up to the outside lane of traffic and while the light was still red, she got out of her car, picked up the barrel, and carried it back over to the curb where it wouldn’t roll into anymore cars. It was particularly impressive because the barrel had no chance of affecting her since it had already rolled into the other lane.

That little gesture of restoring order to the universe was magnificent. I’m one of those people who thinks that every smile, every nice word, or any small thing you do to make things easier for other people isn’t temporary, but ends up somewhere more permanent.
There oughta be a couple hundred million more people like that lady.
