New Light

Tues 3rd

The checkout fella is asked a question by his female colleague, whose shares the station behind him.

“Ever had a girlfriend?”

He slumps a little further into his seat and looks sad.

“Yes,” he says, “but only for four days!”

After some shared banter with all in listening distance, (their initial conversation was far too loud), he grumped that he never met anybody.

I pointed out, his colleague agreed and the woman he was serving blushed, the he met lots and lots of people every day. I then said thank you but I was spoken for and the next customer was pretty.

A little embarrassed but suddenly he was taller, brighter and sparkier. A certain new perspective. Things seen in a new light!
