strangers hugged

Two people on the train have been talking almost the whole way home. One gets up to leave.

“It was a pleasure to meet you!”
“It was great to meet you too.”

Then these two strangers hugged.


i’m so happy for you guys

Grocery shopping today. Two men next to me talked about what kind of pasta to buy when a woman that clearly knew them bumped their cart and said,

“Hey strangers, haven’t seen you in a while! How’s it going, when are you getting married?”

“We already got married! November.”

“Oh shut up! I am so happy for you guys.”

“We are too, we are too.”

you know that?

I was leaving my apartment building when I passed a guy who I often see coming and going. He was with a friend and they walked past me but then he turned around and said,

“you’re really gorgeous, you know that?”

I just smiled and said thank you.

Talk about a day brightener.
