I am obviously known for my contagious smile. There is not a time that I am NOT smiling.
Like in the famous picture the day I birthed a huge baby, without drugs, and then shared my lunch with my toddler....
Or the joy of trick-or-treating after an exciting day teaching and running the school haunted house....
Or enjoying my son's birthday surprise...
So I am confused at the comment I received today.
I got a new windshield on my car.
I love my car and don't really have any complaints.
BUT the windows do not have a tint. I don't own prescription sunglasses, so the glare on a sunny day is taxing.....
the squinting, the headaches....
The "glass man" escorted me to my car to present the finished product.
I immediately noticed a glorious difference and I was overcome with glee..
He pointed to my new windshield, "I gave you an upgrade. It's tinted."
Then he walked me over to the old windshield. "See, you don't have any tint on your windows."
"I know!" I replied.
He grinned, "shhhhhh. Don't tell! The ticket said tint, so I gave it to you, no extra charge."
I was so happy, I could not believe it!
The guy stared at me. "You aren't happy?"
"I'm WAY happy! It gets so hot in the summer and the sun is so bright it gives me a headache!"
"You are that happy?"
"YES! Thank you, very much!"
"Wow, I wonder what makes you smile..."
"I AM smiling!"
Then, from the other side of the car, the man washing and detailing the other cars yells, "see if this makes you smile! I'm hosing the mud off your tires!"
This was turning into the best day ever!
I had recently been muddin and worked hard washing my car on Sunday, but I couldn't get the mud off my tires..
I don't know why they could not see what this famous first day on earth picture shows...
that I was born with a smile
