I walked at Greenlake but I was walking later than usual. I walked from about 5 to about 6.
There were several factors that caused my walk to be later than usual. Some work was done in the afternoon . . . and the receptionist of a chiropractor’s office was hoping that I would come in. The receptionist had sent me an email and I had replied and wanted to accommodate her.
Anyway, there was the funniest thing today–funny or hard to believe! I walk and various people approach me at times on various days, to hug or take a photo or to ask a question or make a comment. Some days no one approaches or interacts with me. “You” often don’t know at first if the person speaking to you will be happy or irritated.
Anyway, Wednesday afternoon, I was walking and I was in a thong which is see-thru in the back and part sides of the front. A woman with two young kids has just entered the walking path from a parking lot area. One kid is in a stroller and the other is of an age slightly above the other.
I am walking and the woman says to me, “Excuse me, but could you tell me where the piano is?”
Ha!! I told her how to find the piano.
So I wondered for a bit if my having the sign makes me seem more approachable . . . or if she would have asked anyone and I was simply the first available for her to ask!
Anyway, cause I at times think of how the law is written, and what is a cause of reasonable affront or alarm . . . well, in this case, today I was not, apparently, as far as she was concerned. Instead I was her choice for directions to the piano! Instead, she thought of me as approachable and normal enough for directions!
A few dozen more yards to the south, another woman smiled and greeted me. I am not sure if this particular clothing item has any unknown or unexpected effect. I would have thought not . . . but either randomly . . . or inexplicably and for a reason I do not know . . . this clothing item has been associated with a few more than usual positive interactions. I don’t know why.
On one hand, on at least some days on which I have worn this item, there has been no particularly noticeable favorable response. On the other hand I have not worn it often and on two or more out of four to seven days that I have worn it, I have had nice, fun or happy results while I was wearing it . . . But perhaps it is a statistical fluke!
