    An old lady was… jumping like a kangaroo!
    She jumped and to waved your arms around, I thought that she was happy, but so far I don’t know that happened to her!
    Then she looked me and said: Do you lost something?
    I shyly said: Sorry, but I was absent-minded, then I went away!

    …looking fixedly for me and she seemed angry and I don’t know what I did to her… So I wondered what could be? Maybe she wasn’t happy because it was raining a lot this day or maybe the storm changed her humor. When I noticed I said: Holy crap! She was running for catch me… and thought myself: RUN AWAY !!!

    I was walking home from work yesterday when I saw something really, I mean, really strange. A young lady was sitting in a bench with a laptop on her lap and laughing out loud. I get closer and recognized the green EE banner on her screen, so I easily understood the reason for her laugh and did not find it strange anymore.

    An old lady was crossing the street jumping with one leg, seemed as if she was playing and having fun doing that. There were some cars trying to pass over but they were scared to run over the grandma. So they’ve started to horn out loud but I think she was deaf, giving no idea to them!

    I was walking home from work yesterday when I saw something really, I mean, really strange. An old lady was …talking to some guys and I was scared, then she looked at me and said do not be scared.
    She said:” I’m only selling a little happiness to these guys. I need money and this is a good way to get it.”
    She turned to the boys and they started laughing .. then you can use your imagination and figure out what she was selling.
    Do not be evil ….
    Good thoughts.
