As I left the post office today an older man held the door open for me. I said thank you and smiled. He said Iâ€™d like to ask you a question that you probably donâ€™t know the answer to. I thought to myself heâ€™s probably right! But â€“ I said O.K.
He asked whatâ€™s the longest word in the English language? I said Mississippi. He said thatâ€™s a period in comparison.
He said itâ€™s the word smiles because it starts with an S â€“ ends with an S â€“ and thereâ€™s a mile in-between. He added that itâ€™s so nice to see someone smile â€“ something you donâ€™t see too often.
Then our conversation went on like we were friends. He said if I donâ€™t see you before the Holiday have a good one. I wished him the same and headed towards my car. I turned back around to take another look at his face and he was gone.
