I’m not someone who’s comfortable approaching strangers. My face flushes and I chuckle nervously … I’m sure I end up frightening them more often than not.
But when a random act of niceness is involved, sacrifices need to be made, right?
On my walk back from the lakefront at lunch time, I spotted three ladies trying to take a photo of the CN Tower. They were chatting about where to stand to get the best angle.
I just assumed they were tourists, so I mustered up the courage to approach them — actually, it didn’t take much courage, they looked pretty friendly … at first. So I walked over and asked if they’d like me to take a picture of them together.
Well, either they didn’t actually know each other, or I looked like an axe murderer, because they immediately started shaking their heads “no.” I could swear they all inched away from me a little.
One of the women even started snickering. Or maybe she, too, had a nervous laugh.
Oh well, I tried… tomorrow is another day….
P.S. Here’s Think of You from A Fine Frenzy. Enjoy!
