The man who used his toes in a restaurant.

So, I was not here when this happened, but it obviously left a great impression on my friend who later that same night told this story because she was in such amazement. The story is as follows:

She said she went to Pasta Jays on pearl street for dinner to celebrate her boyfriends birthday. They were a party of three who had just given their name to the hostess when an older man came up to the podeum to tell the hostess that he too had three in his party. However, this man was a little peculiar in the way in which he went about demonstrating the party consisted of three… he reaches for his feet and streatches his foot into the hostesses view and counts, “1, 2,3” on his toes and says, “three, there are three in my party.”

Strange right?

I can explain

“Those words I said, they really didn’t mean anything, I mean we just put our own meanings to words…”

Leave a party if you see Multiple people passed out on the floor with their shoes on

Multiple people passed out on the floor with their shoes on
Obviously you have been there too long if people who were once awake and fun are passed out drunk on the floor with their shoes still on or even better, with half their body in the house and the other half outside the door.

I always use my ipod, everywhere I go. I really don’t have any complaints about my ipod except the ear phones get all tangled everyday and I waste precious time walking and untangling them when I could be using this time to look at the world around me.. or even see where I am going!
Who ever paid attention to the deatails that ipod earphones get tangled and zippers stay untangled right now is at the center of my universe! Plus they just look cool and they really thought up one great detail: THERE IS A VOLUME SWITCH ON THE ZIP BIT! I no longer have to stubb my toe on that piece of sidewalk that is out of place while I am untangling the mess of wire known as my earphones.

Who has the leash in the relationship?

Here is a hidden detail in life as seen through the car window:

In the morning there was an overweight guy in a park with his two dogs. As I drove by he had just thrown their ball.  However, the dogs both did not move. The man then threw up his hands and clearly said, “Come on! What is wrong with you!” I couldn’t help but laugh. It’s like when you walk a dog but they end up walking you.. who really has the power in the man vs. dog relationship?

People on my Journey pt. 2

This next leg of my journey was less personal but so much more interesting. Airports really are the best places to watch people, I mean as you wait for your plane there is nothing you can do really.

As I was waiting in Denver for my flight to Dallas Ft. Worth I noticed the difference between American Airlines and Southwest. Southwest is friendly, fun and cheap. It appears that Southwest cares more abou their passangers, where as on American Airlines they just see us as dollar signs. You pay for your bag, you pay for your snack if you want one and the crew is often times extremely rude. There was a young hispanic girl who, while she was waiting had taken almost everything out of her backpack. Then they started boarding call and she had too much stuff to pack up that quickly so she just proceeded to the gate ticket in hand with all her stuff in her hands as well. Well, the lady working at the gate just started yelling at her. It was totally rude and extremely uncalled for. In fact, I felt bad for the girl. I had been watching her and knew that most, if not all of that stuff fit in her backpack which was of the correct size to bring on board. I could not beleive it. That was the first time in about 7 years I would say that I had flown American and let me tell you, I don’t want to fly them again because I bet if the girl were a business man she would have been treated differently.

While flying I was seated next to a really nice woman (Thank God). She had been through a lot in her life. She is a widow and he son had lukemea when he was a teen. Luckly, he is perfectly healthy now. Could you imagine losing your husband when he is only 50 years old? You think you are going to grow old together and see your children grow up and he just dies of a stroke so young! Yet, although all these horrible and emotially draining things happened to this women she was so positive about life. She was so loving and so nice to be around! If such horrible things had happened to me I’m not too sure I would be so positive about life. But maybe it is those things that allowed her to see the real beauty and positivity in life. I really truely hope the best for this woman.

People on My Journey pt. 1

There is seriously no better place to people watch than the airport or bus station. I was making a short trip to Florida for Passover with my family and had some pretty interesting experiences with some strangers.

At the bus stop I arrived early and met a man that works for RTD named Yogi. He was extremely personable and extremely helpful so we got to talking about eachother. Turns out he is from a small town in South Carolina and pretty religious as I would have assumed most people from the south are. He came out to Colorado to do his mission as well as going to North Carolina and South Carolina. There was just something about this man that I found interesting enough to watch.Whenever someone walked into the station he always asked them what he could help them with and sure enough they always had a question. It was as though he could read people’s minds which I found interesting. He even half the time knew where people were going before they even mentioned they were heading there.  He knew all the bus routes and times they left with out fail. He came off as a really hard worker and someone who really cares about the people he interacts with on a day to day basis. The world needs more people with an outlook and ethic like Yogi’s.

The next character at the bus stop was a mentally disabled man named Roman. Apparently he comes to the bus station everyday and through the glass teases the men that work there. It is this on going game they all have together. Roman has a really slow shuffle and huge glasses, I think his name fit him well. After some time teasing the men, Roman slowly shuffles towards me as I sit alone on the bench. He says, “Hello Sweetie.” I say, Hello, how are you?” He doesn’t answer me and gets straight to the point with a, “What’s your name?” I really respect people that get straight to the point. There are two ways people intorduce new information. The first way is more common where people dance around a question and never really get right to what they are meaning to ask or say. These sorts of people I would imagine are people that are too concerned with how they will come off. Then there are people that jump right in and tell you how it is. These kind of people mean well, sometimes offend people, but generally don’t want to waste time. I respect these people more beacuse they realize life is short and we only have so much time with eachother. Anyways, I tell Roman my name and he tells me his and then takes my hand and kisses it and shuffles away. This interaction got me thinking, do humans have an instinct? I mean, it’s not too often that you choose to meet someone and they don’t turn out to be interesting. And also, what purpose do random interactions pose in our lives?
