Rainy Morning with Smile

'make me smile' – the wedding present

warning: cheesy story alert

Had a very nice morning commute today. Usually, i commute in on auto-pilot with all the other robotic auto-piloting hordes. (luckily, i start work at 10, so it's not as horde-y as it could be...)

Anyway, this morning started out as normal, with me rushing road madly simultaneously trying to get dressed, put on make-up & inhale coffee.
Made it to the bus stop, got on, turned up my i-pod & gazed out the window.

All to plan – and i was on time too! Woohoo!

Then, at the next stop, a little girl & her mum got on the bus. Little girl sat in front of me, and proceeded to draw pictures in the condensation. It was totally fascinating. Was intrigued by her strange design – was it a fish? A person? A monster?

Then she noticed the foreigner (me) sitting behind her.
Usually this is the point where kids freak out, but no. she started pointing at her picture, then smiling at me.
Then she launched into conversation...she wanted to know where i was from, what was my name, where i was going & what pre-schools were like in england. After that, she told me about how she had travelled to England, America & China. But she'd gone there on her own, because her mum doesn't like travelling... she also told me that she was 5 years old, 6 in October.

Fascinating girl...friendly, full of fantasy & dreams & not afraid.

She made my day.
