On workdays, I park downtown near a large event center. Today a sports game was getting underway as I was leaving work, and a block away from the event center, I saw two gentlemen standing on the street, talking to one another. One man held a sign:
and the other held a fistful of desired items:
When I saw this scene, I wanted to go down to the men, and help them out: “You know, I couldn’t help but see that you were in need of some tickets, and – oh wow! This guy right next to you has a whole bunch of them! It looks like you two were almost destined to meet each other tonight, no? Awesome; I’m so happy I got to help you both! Good night!” And then clap them both on the back, and leave with a big ol’ grin on my face.
Of course, I did no such thing. But the visible situation, and the one that played in my head, both made me smile. : )
