Smile of the day

I got off the crowded train at my station and began my usual practice of crowd weaving as I made my way around slow moving grannies and tired salary men. I came up behind a young guy, who was walking very slowly. As I was about to pass him, he looked back over his shoulder, expecting to see his girlfriend. When he saw me instead of his petite, short-skirted, high-heeled girlfriend he jumped quite noticeably. I couldn't help but giggle to myself. He turned quickly to the other side, and his girlfriend who took his hand and teased him for his mistake. He had noticed my grin, and was doubly surprised - "Hey! She's laughing too!" he remarks to his girlfriend. Really laughing then I looked back over my shoulder, but the pair was lost in the sea of home-bound train-goers.
