On this 74th Day of Campaign Smile I chose a small Christian book store for my campaign stop. The opportunities for gathering a smile were, unfortunately, rather few. Perhaps the effect of my attempts were more grand than immediately seen.
1. As I was walking toward the building a woman who was beginning to back out of a parking spot saw me. She returned my smile and gestured me ahead as she told me the same thing.
2. Inside the store there were only a handful of people shopping. Almost all of them, as well as the employees, were engrossed in their own activities and took little notice of my smiling face. With a little luck they at least saw me without realizing and it helped their Friday doldrums.
3. The one exception was a woman wearing a shirt identifying her as a chaplain with one of the police departments. She stopped, asked how I was and was very cordial. Still, she did not have a smile to give.
With only 1 more smile to add to the total I can see how much the small business needed more cheer. Hope it helped! That’s 237 and counting.
