Don’t worry. I’m ok. It’s no big deal.

Yesterday, I was at a coffee shop enjoying a hazelnut mocha with my friend Anna, when a little boy wandered over to our table as his mother was at the cash register.

Anna: Hi!

Little Boy: Hi!

Anna: What are you doing?

Little Boy: [Indecipherable]

Anna: Do you like the rain today?

Little Boy: Yeah!

Little Boy turned to look at me.

Jillian: Hi!

Little Boy: [Pause] Your hair looks funny.

Mom rushed from the register, shooed her little angel out of the door, apologized to me, and headed on her way.

I couldn’t help but be reminded of this incident.

Maybe I need to have a meeting with my mirror and reevaluate…
