1001 Black Men–#134

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and like many people, I spent part of the day before Valentine’s Day shopping for the perfect card. At the stationary store, I part of a throng of people crammed into the 9-foot wide area where they displayed all of the cards for this holiday.  We were delicately and politely reaching over and around each other, and I had the feeling everyone was trying to keep from elbowing other people out of the way. I guess I wasn’t trying hard enough. I accidentally elbowed a guy on my left, and when I turned around to apologize, I saw that he had the most beautiful white gray hair and beard. I told him I was sorry for pushing him and that I liked his style. He smiled in that way older folks sometimes look at young people who seem to be a little bit of a mess. I smiled and turned away, making a mental note that, when my hair is completely white, I hope it’s the same beautiful bright white as his.
