i’m talking to strangers?! yes indeedy.
before meeting up with a few fellow single ladies for a low key birthday celebration, i ran a couple of errands.
me: i’m picking up a prescription for mumford. *spells name*
him: first name?
him: date of birth.
me: january 8.
him: *types into computer* *pauses* *looks up* happy birthday.
me: thank you!
him: it took me a minute to connect the dots.
he grabbed my prescription as i marveled at his ingenuity. granted, it wasn’t that difficult to realize it was my birthday given i had just told him my date of birth, but i’m often surprised when others (say a bartender with my license in hand) overlook it.
it was a small comment, but him connecting the dots put some frosting on otherwise boring errands.

Little things like that can really brighten your day, can’t they? :)
they really do, especially when they are so unexpected.
I love when people notice it’s my birthday!
So, 49 conversations with strangers. What happens next time?!?!?! Oh, the suspense! :))
i hadn’t even thought about that. oh geez, now i’ve got to have a really good conversation!
no pressure :)
That is nice when that happens. I was on the phone with someone the day after my birthday and she realized it had just been my birthday too :) Made me smile when she wished me a happy birthday! Glad even strangers contributed to a good birthday for you!
and i’m glad your coworker helped make it a good birthday for you! or rather, helped to extend the celebration!
