Sitting at a table in a restaurant, sipping on a beer, ordering a salad and then?
In walks a Greek God, or a hunk who looks like Tom Selleck in his younger days.
Oblivious to reality, I open mouth and ask him: “Do you know who you look like?”
I can tell.
No one can be that handsome and not know it.
Then why, I am asking myself, is he hanging out in this bar, having a few beers and looking miserable?
Once we get through the initial introduction, we converse.
He has worked all day. .. and he will work tomorrow.
Ok, so, no Easter plans?
Would you like to have dinner with me and my friends tomorrow?
He opens up.
He would rather have a 6 pack after working all day.
I tell him: “Me too.”
I doubt if I will ever see him again.
People come and people go into our lives.
How many, however, feel good about a random encounter?
He left with a smile, and that was enough for me.
Reminds me of the words of Glen Frey: “We may win and we may lose, but we will never be here again.”
Another moment: living in the “now”.
A casual meeting that made me feel alive.
