I ate my lunch in the park today. I sat on a bench next to a middle-aged businessman, who I made no eye contact with. I try not to make eye contact while eating my lunch in the park. I started peeling an orange; my bench buddy got up to leave, but not without saying, "I have an extra napkin. Would you like it? I know oranges can be messy."
I accepted, saying, "Thank you for thinking ahead for me."
It was a really nice napkin.
