As I sit here in my company’s lunchroom, I am extremely glad to inform you that my husband bought me an early birthday present-a laptop. I’m so excited. Now I can walk away from my desk at lunch time. Anyhow, I just thought that I’d write about how we may walk by a million people in our lives and never say a word to them. What I mean is, how little time it takes to say a simple “hello.”
I say this because as I sit here, wondering about what to write, I am watching numerous people walk by without saying a word. If they only knew that I was writing about them, huh? It’s funny if I said something like, “How’s it going?” I would totally throw them off guard. They’d wonder who I was of course and maybe walk by without say a word, or look around without knowing whether or not I was talking to them. Maybe they would even play it off like thy knew me. I would totally confuse them, by seeing how long that played out and then maybe saying, “Good to see you. I gotta go.” Without explaining a thing.
What I am trying to say that I don’t know if it’s the simple fact that I’m a writer, or that I have an extremely imaginative personality that makes me wonder what people are thinking, where their lives are at, or simply previous or future experiences. I can literally look around this room of about one hundred people- maybe more- I work at a corporate location, and think of a story for each one of them. I am the type of person that says, “Hello” or “Good morning.” I hope it brightens their day and if not, maybe it will brighten mine. I mean you never know who it I that you are saying “hello” to, do you?
Have a great Wednesday!
