I was having a major attack of the grumpies today (still am to a certan degree), when I decided to stop off at Burger King for lunch after picking up a scrip at CVS.
After getting my order (Whopper Jr value meal) I found a booth to sit at. Placing my tray down (in and of itself, an adventure with my bad hands), I plopped my butt down and took off my hat and glasses.
As I started eating my fries, a three year old boy sitting in the booth next to me, pointed and said to his dad, "That man has no hair!"
Yes boys and girls, I have no hair. Been shaving my head consistently since 2006.
Anyways, the dad made the son apologize for being rude. I accepted it graciously, even though there really was no need for the boy to apologize.
Because for the rest of my lunch, I wasn't as grumpy as I was when I walked in to begin with. I also had a smile on face and my mood was just a little bit lighter by the time I finished.
Sometimes, honesty from a child can often bring a smile to even the grumpiest of peoople.
