    One day last week a girl in the elevator with me was wearing some great shoes, so I said, "Hey, those are great shoes."  The next day she said hi in the coffee line-up and we started talking. So I told someone else I liked her necklace and she told me her daughter...

    It Was Nice:)

    Around 8 in the morning, I was waiting for the bus to take me to work and feeling like crap (just because). Traffic was slow, and then some guy yells out his car window, "You have really nice eyes". Totally caught me off guard :)
