Last Thursday, I was walking down Fourth Street in San Rafael
A man in jeans, a white T-shirt and running shoes was walking ahead of me.
It was a beautiful day and swarms of people were on the street. I noticed that practically every person this guy passed smiled and said ‘hey’ to him.
I knew it was not Mill Valley Film Festival Guru and Sweetheart, Mark Fishkin, the guy was too short. I knew it wasn’t Sean Penn, he’s too tall. Consistently, almost every single man or woman either smiles, nods, laughs and says’ hi’ to this guy.
In my wildest imagination, I couldn’t fathom who he was or what he was doing to garner so much attention.
I picked up my pace a bit so we both were stopped at the red light. I nonchalantly looked over at him. Now even more than curious to see who this celebrity could be. He looked like any other good-looking, Irish-Catholic, healthy, handsome fireman guy.
The Magic T-shirt
However, he was wearing a “Magic T-shirt.” His shirt was emblazoned with three words in varying fonts, color and sizes. The words on the front of his shirt were “Hi” “hey” and “hello.”
I had to laugh – and say hey.
Epiphany time : Do You want to meet people?
Call me prescient: All you have to do is: say ‘hello,’ hey’ or ‘hi.’ I guarantee you will meet singles everywhere.
