Day 116

Today me and a friend of mine made a person’s day.  We were just meeting in the courtyard of my apartment, walking slowly to greet each other.  Over the past few months, years even, we have been working on and perfecting an elaborate handshake.  The whole ritual takes both arms, and even involves some spinning in place.  We approached and with the most casual attitude executed it perfectly.

I turned to see someone sitting in the front seat of a car, not two meters from where we were, smiling from ear to ear.

Our action, so out of the ordinary, so zany, totally invigored this guy and filled him with happiness, written all over his face.

It felt good.
