Greetings

By: Feli Sebastian

Have you come across the Greeter Guy by the Bloomington downtown public garage?

He sits on the ledge on the ground floor of the building and says on every passer-by:

“You have a nice hair today.” At first, I wasn’t sure if he was talking to me as I had a bad

hair day that day. I wanted to disagree with him but on second thought, I replied: “Thank

you.” and crossed the street towards Crossroads Fair Trade Store where I was going to

do my volunteer shift. I noticed that I had a smile on my face and I felt light inside as I

continued walking.

Later in the morning, I mentioned this encounter with my volunteer partner. She laughed

and said: “Oh, he greeted you, too?” I nodded and we both laughed.

As my brother often asked: “And how was your day?”
