In the last two days, about 14 different random amazing things have happened to me.
It all started with this: Yesterday I’m waiting in line at the restroom of a cafe, and a random very young girl approaches and says, “Can I ask you something? I think I’m on a date. I’ve never been on a date before. He just paid for everything, and I really like him. What do I do?”
Over on Facebook, everyone wants to know what I told her to do. But I don’t think she was actually looking for advice. She just wanted someone to share her excitement with. I think I offered something like “keep your cool.”
“I feel like such an adult,” she says.
This moment made my whole day. And I would *never* have done what that girl did. But why wouldn’t I? Why wouldn’t I choose to share a moment of joy with a total stranger? What’s holding me back?
And that was just the start. Other good stuff…
*Running late for an event at the Last Bookstore in DTLA, I find a parking spot, *directly outside the front door*
*Getting up painfully early, I discover that, yes, the eclipsed moon is indeed setting right over Griffith Observatory, as I had hoped it might.
*After dragging my tired ass to drinks with a friend last night at 10 pm (sort of dreading it), we run into three of his colleagues, all of whom are prosecutors in the DA’s anti-gang unit. Really fun conversation leads to late night.
