Once when driving to tap class, there was a stinky homeless lady on the side of the road. ( pre-jake era) She was there the next week as well. So for some reason I got the urge to pull over and say hi. I did and she said hi back. So that was it, (not much of a conversation) but before I left I reached into my purse and pulled out a $5 to give to her. The homeless lady said, "what is this for I don't need it." I said, "oh ok" - felt a little embarrassed/stupid. put the bill back in my purse, thinking now I am late for tap dance class &, this lady is just plain smelly!! Then I saw this bright little yellow smiley squeeze ball in my purse and thought "what the heck maybe she would like this". I handed her the Smiley Ball, and she took it and said, "wow - where did you get this? I lost this years ago and I have been missing it?" This "smelly" lady was so happy she thanked me for a smiley ball???!! The simple smiley ball made her day!! Who knew????
You never know???
So - stay connected, my friends!!!
And try to be more smiley PIRATES then smelly PIRATES!!
have a great week - Party like a Pirate!!
