Smile after smile?

Children laughing
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
(Silver Bells)

I don’t know about you, but it’s been a while since I’ve been on a street, in any time of year, where all the children are laughing, and all us adults are passing each other with smile after smile.

Sounds nice, though.

Of course, you and I could do our part. Here’s a challenge for today: Smile at a stranger. Whether walking down a street, or waving at a fellow driver, or seeing someone coming down the hall from another office, let’s try and offer a smile. Let’s just see what happens.

(But do it just once. Don’t wanna give people one more reason to think we’re looney. Or creepy.)

Here’s the three best versions of “Silver Bells”:

  1. She & Him (this is the actress Zooey Deschanel’s band—remember her adorable singing in Elf?)
  2. Stevie Wonder
  3. Elvis Presley
