Quick Write 082311 “Smile to you”

Since my awaited summer vacation started a week ago, I’ve found myself giving more smiles to others. I admit that during the first semester I was constantly running around, teaching classes, learning English, resting, and going back to work the next day, and I focused on what I was doing and paid necessary, but minimum attention to the people around me. Today I went to a Sweden-based furniture store to look for a new table. It was Tuesday afternoon, and lots of families with small kids were browsing items there. While I was walking towards stairways, I found a young mother who was holding her son in her arms about three meters ahead. The kid seemed to be in a very bad temper and was leaning his back in his mother’s arms. The mother was trying to ease the kid, but he was getting fussier and fussier. I was walking faster than the family, so soon I caught up with the kid who was just at the height of my eyes. I had no idea why he was in so bad a mood, but thought he was too adorable to just pass by. Then I talked to him like, “Hey, man. What’s wrong with you? ” with a big, big smile. I actually didn’t expect anything to happen, but the kid seemed to be taken by surprise or something, and stopped being fussy. I said to him, “Oh, you’re coming around, huh? That’s good.” with my second “killer” smile. Then the mother looked at him and said “Oh, are you? Oh, yes. Good boy.” Then the family walked to the elevator with the smiling boy. I was a little honored thinking that my smile did something to someone else. And I soon remembered “the golden rule” that smiling to others makes me smile as well.
