August 31, 2014: A Kind Word

I ran into my neighbour who was out walking her dog.  In amidst the local gossip, she invited me to the gym to participate in a weight class she attends.  Having never been invited before, I wondered why this came up.  Her answer, among other things (including specific praise for her instructor), was that she noticed that I had lost weight.

Cue the Rocky music (not Eye of the Tiger…. the other one)

When someone notices that you’ve lost weight…. do I really have to tell you?  Okay, that is Today’s Perfect Moment.

I walked away with a bit more swagger.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
