I was wondering around city streets in search of a cup of coffee on a late foggy Saturday morning. I stopped in what I thought was a tea house but later discovered I was mistaken. It looked fancy enough to perhaps have to do with weddings or some other kind of formal celebrations. I was quite underdressed in my jeans and casually stylish scarf. I only stayed long enough to confirm for onlookers that I didn't walk in there by mistake (although I most certainly did!).
Before walking in to this fancy establishment, I noticed an elderly man with a briefcase trying to get out. So I held the door open for him and his wife who followed. "Well, you don't see that everyday," he smiled, "a nice young lady holding the door for an old man like me." I did a double take, "Old man? I don't see any old men around here!"
He and his wife chucked. As they were leaving, his wife turned to me and said "that's the best compliment we've heard today. Thank you." We both shared a smile. On that sweet note we parted ways and I continued my search for a coffee.
