I was headed out of Walmart yesterday. As I headed towards the sliding glass doors, an elderly man was headed in. He flashed a huge smile and with great flair, he raised his hands and flung them wide. The doors slid open, just as they usually do when a person approaches them, and with the grin of a satisfied magician, he dropped his hands and stepped through the door.
I burst out laughing and said, "Man, that's quite a magic trick there, by gosh!" and he said, with mock modesty, "Yes. I know a lot of tricks like this."
I love that the world has characters like that. I made up my mind that I'm going to be one.
