Smile in my pocket

Today I was talking to a guy in the elevator of our condo complex. He was about 65-70 and very happy. He was on vacation renting a unit.     

I said to him "you know why I love living here? Most of the units are filled with vacationer having a good time and they are always smiling."  He grinned even bigger and said "I wear a smile all the time. I think it looks good on me".  I laughed. It was funny and he was very cute the way he said it (good line for you to use!)

Anyway, Then he said  "I also always carry around an extra smile in my pocket in case I run into someone who needs one". ( you know what's coming next!) He reached into his pocket and pulled out and orange Norman.    I squealed. "Norman!!! ". He said no "Bob". I said "no, your little orange seed, I named all the orange ones Norman."   I then told him I knew you, blah blah blah...  It was a very fun encounter. He said he never goes anywhere without his seeds. He's from Indiana.  Cool huh????? Thought that would make your day!!!!

Funny that he just happened to have an orange one in his pocket. Of all colours, "Norman orange"

Love ya, dude
