I'm sitting at Peet's Coffee and Tea as I write. Every morning I get in my car and say, "Ok Lord, where we going?" I know it's a coffee shop somewhere, just don't always have it planned out. Today, it's Peet's at Bridgeport Village.
Regardless of where I go I have to drive down my street. And every morning (well, at least 4 out of 5 weekdays) I see the same guy walking. He's an older man, I'd guess 70 or so. For over 5 months now I've been seeing this guy walking and every time I see him I wave.
For 5 months straight I've driven past this man, waved, and been hung out to dry - every time. I get nothing. No response. A blank stare. That is, until today. As I was driving here this morning I saw him and gave my usual wave. But this time was different, much different. First off, he responded, which you'd think would be a good thing. Especially after 5 months of being denied! But his response was very different than I hoped. Yeah, well, he flipped me off!
