1001 Black Men–#134

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and like many people, I spent part of the afternoon shopping for the perfect card. At the stationary store, I was part of a throng of people crammed into the 9-foot wide area where they displayed all of the holiday cards.  We were delicately and politely reaching over and around each other. I guess I wasn’t delicate enough. I accidentally elbowed the man in this drawing. When I turned to him to apologize, I saw that he had the most beautiful white gray hair and beard. I told him I was sorry for bumping into him, and he smiled in that way older folks sometimes do when they encounter a young person who’s stressed out about things that, in the long run, don’t really, truly matter.
