Jack Blanchard: Little Things

Thousands of intelligent good-looking readers.

LITTLE THINGS

A couple of days ago I was in a dark mood, sitting on a bench at Publix, 

waiting for Misty and watching people check out.  
A little girl 5 or 6 years old said, “I’m going to sit by you.” 

She sat and talked with me for about 5 minutes. 

She held a small black purse with two straps,
and she didn’t deal in affectations or childish cuteness,
but looked directly into my eyes and conversed person-to-person.

She said, “Is your mommy here?” 
I said “Yes.” 
She said, ‘What’s her name?” 
I said “Misty.” 
She pointed to her mother and told me her name.

She turned and took a closer look and asked “Do you have make-up on?”
I said no and she said, “A beard.”
I said “Yep” and she said, “Why?”
I said, “Style, I guess.”
She accepted that, and pointed at my longish hair.
I said, “I’ve got to cut that hair.”, 
and she said “No! Long hair is nice.”,
running her fingers through her blond hair to illustrate.

A lady shopper stopped and told her, “You’re so pretty!”
The little girl just smiled her thanks.

Misty appeared with her shopping cart.
She smiled and said, “I see you have a friend.”
The little girl said, “Go!” to me,
as if people should go when their parents are waiting.
I said I’d probably stay seated there. 
(I was having a bad hip day. An old Disco injury.)
She asked, “Why?”
I told her I liked to watch the people, and she thought that over.

Then her mother came by and they walked away. 
She turned and waved and called “”Bye”. 
She made me happy! 
I won’t forget her.
