Last evening I had to run out for an errand and when I came home, I parked in front of the house. As I was getting out of the car, a shiny-clean, pretty blue, somewhat older car pulled up and the window went down. A very cute clean-cut red-haired fellow called out, "Excuse me?" My first thought was he wanted directions to someplace, but he was young and coming from the direction of the high school, so I didn't think that was likely. So I smiled at him.
"I've seen your car out front sometimes when I drive by here. And I just wanted to tell you, I like your bumper sticker."
Amazed, I quickly considered which one he meant: Women for Obama, Marriage Equality, or Sweden? So I said, "Oh! I'm not really much of a bumper sticker person, but those things are important to me."
"You bet!" he replied, and then flashed his phone at me so I could see his Marriage Equality sticker. "That's really important," I agreed. "We've got the right President, too!" He added. So I said, "Let's hope we can keep him."
And then this adorable kid said, "I just turned eighteen and I can't wait to vote for him!"
Wasn't that just the nicest thing? I'm still smiling.
