Today, in an hour's time I made three people smile, and actually two of them laughed, and one of those two, blushed
(meaning their face got all red!).
I love to make people smile, and sometimes I work at it to help others, but I think I probably do it because I myself get so much pleasure out of it.
I'll tell you what I did, because honestly, few people make ME laugh, and maybe it's about time to help people in this field.
1. While I was parked at a stoplight a foreigner was asking for money. I don't always give these boys at the stoplights money, and today I was thinking that I should give something to Gaza, so I thought, NO I won't. But this young man was smiling so so big, that I gave him some money. He smiled even more and said something kind to me.
2. Then I stopped to buy the newspaper so I said with a serious face to the girl selling papers "I would like a newspaper, but one with only good news". What a smile she gave me, and a laugh! Then I said, "Sold out, eh? I bet you finished those papers about 50 years ago."
3. Then at the pharmacy I wanted to buy some special bars, and the young man said "What kind do you want?" I said YOU just chose by yourself". He gave me two flavors and I said, "Oh no, not this one"" And he said, well, you said that I should chose. And I said, yes, but you chose wrong. He was smiling then, but when he chose another one, I said "NO, not this one either!" At that point he really was laughing and he blushed! The other employees didn't see the humour in it, but he and I did. I left smiling, and he was standing there blushing and laughing.

It is not hard to lighten up someone's day, it is such a delight to see people smile. Try it!

Hey Stephany, thank you very much for this one! I don´t have a story of my own right now but I totally feel the same. Even or especially on days that I feel sad or angry or just not in place I try to cheer up someone in the street or at the counter, and that moment we share a smile or a grin makes the light come back to my day!
Great to know that there are more people out there using that little "technique"... And yes, let´s start that group!! **PP**
