It's an old addage, I know...but it rings true always.
Just an interesting little story for ya, that I thought I'd share and what I was reminded of:
I was at the gym this morning and there's a nice fellow there that I chat with. Actually, I chat with a lot of people in between 'sets', but anyway, this particular guy I've struck up an acquaintance with. Nice guy.
Looking at him first time, he looked like a co-worker of mine and the fact that he's about 6 ft 6 - and I'm only 5 ft 10....and he's quite 'tattoo'd'. By his appearance, I figured he's some sort of tattoo artist or something. I figured a single guy - not sure why.
As I have gotten to know this guy, he's really really a nice fellow. About two weeks ago I told him about my impending 'child' and he said, 'Yeah, I have 3 little boys of my own. The youngest is 2 1/2." I was somewhat taken aback by this - and thought it was cool. He said, "My wife stays home and cares for them while I go out and make a living." Cool!
Today we were chatting and each day he always says, "Hey, another day closer! What is it now, 6 days?" Well, he's right - it is 6 days until my wife's 10/18 c-section. How cool of this fellow to remember.
As we chatted a bit today, I find out he's a HISTORY TEACHER! NEVER in a million years would I have thought that this tattoo'd/pierced guy was a TEACHER and I must tell you, I thought that was sooo cool.
Anyway, - just my little story and what I was reminded of today. What something seems on the outside might not be what is on the inside.
Have a great day everyone!
