We all know that a wink or a smile from an attractive woman can set a man’s heart all aflutter and send his imagination into overdrive . . .
Smiles . . .
Well, it works both ways. This evening, for example, I was sitting alone in the cafeteria at work, suffering from post-holiday letdown, when a handsome youngish guy who I’m sure has a thing for me — I mean, don’t they all? — walked past the open doorway, backtracked and waved to me with a smile on his face . . .
I had my headphones on, listening on my smartphone to the song No One Is To Blame by Howard Jones on YouTube, so I didn’t catch what my ‘admirer’ said — probably “Happy New Year!”
But his smile lifted my spirits. So here I am back at my desk, on the tail end of my dinner break, telling you all about it.
The moral of the story is: Never underestimate the power of your smile, guys. It can make somebody’s day, with very little effort on your part.
