It's a Beautiful Day

I walked out of my house this morning and the first thing I thought was,

"I can't believe that twenty minutes ago I was still sleeping."

As I was walking to the subway, all I could think of was my large coffee light with half and half plus two sugars waiting for me at the corner coffee shop.

While I was on the train, all I thought about whether or not Staples would be open, when I got there to buy my boss some mechanical pencils.

When I was in Staples, I had the nicest conversation with the young woman behind the counter. She asked me how I was feeling. I told her, "I'm tired, I want to go home and I hate my job. How are you?"

She said, "I'm pregnant." and she laughed. She was really giddy about it and told me how she was looking forward to it, although no matter what book she read she didn't feel ready.

It turned my mood right around and set me up for a nice day.

It's nice to have a decent conversatin with sales people. Not when they are being fake but when they are being conversational.
