Anyway, this fella was wearing a big, red oversize T-shirt that read "SIX PACK COMING SOON". My first thought was, "Wow, is he just being honest?" And then I thought, why on earth would this guy have spent his hard-earned money on that shirt. OK, I suppose it was possible, but then I began to wonder if someone had given him that shirt...you know, as a joke. And then I saw his smile. His big, wonderfully goofy smile, and then I didn't care any more about how he'd gotten the shirt. I just knew that this guy was able to find the silver lining, the happy, the whimsical in the package he was presenting.
And then I wished I'd had a dollar to give him.
