I was on my way home from work and popped into the bookstore at the mall for the latest T V Guide issue. When I started to get close to the check-out, I noticed that the cashier was dressed really cute. Purple satin shorts with pretty lace trimmings around the legs, white cotton long sleeve crop top. Seeing her belly button peek out from just above the waistline of her shorts was very cutesy. A pair of perfectly white tennis shoes completed the outfit. As she scanned the barcode on my magazine, I noticed that it was very apparent that she was not embarrassed about being a boy. Her close-cropped blond boy hair was not covered by a wig. She had minimal makeup on. Maybe just a little blush on her cheeks. Her earrings were gorgeous!! Two large diamond studs. I guessed her age to be about 30. I was still dressed in my drab security guard uniform. I noticed that there was nobody in line behind me, so I broke the ice. During our transaction I had the opportunity to lock eyes with her and smile broadly. Before I walked away, I told her that I loved her cute outfit. She smiled and said her name was Cindy. I told her my name was "Barbie". She got a confused look on her face but that quickly changed to a look of understanding. She smiled and winked at me as I exited the store. So, my answer is "yes" you should never miss an opportunity to meet a new friend.
