So I was out with The Green Fairy this weekend. Pictures later, when she gets home and on the computer after much yelling at her shiternet. Yesterday, before I came home I was in Hungry Jack's at Central (veggie burger nomnom), standing in line, when a woman in her 70s or 80s struck up a conversation with me.
She said she'd seen quite a few people "dressed up like you" and asked if there was some kind of event going on. I said I didn't know, but there had probably been stuff the night before and it was after all a nice day to be out. She and I chatted while in line, she said she loved our clothing, all of it, and then she said this:
"I love seeing people dressed up like you. I think it cheers people up. It definitely cheers me up."
There's the crux of it, I suppose! My utterly cheery demenour, my friendly behaviour, my being polite and helpful, and my happy pink hair and bright blush - it pays off, because it cheers people up to see something different! Really makes it all worth it in the end.
Here's to you, kind elderly people. You brighten my day, too!
(and here's to you, elderly man who held the hotel door open for me and wished me a happy wedding, looking confused when I laughed. I don't know why you thought I was getting married, and I promise, I wish I was, but you've obviously seen alternative wedding attire before. And that's awesome.)
