Spreading Sunshine A Petal At A Time

, , , , | Friendly | January 25, 2021

Back before the health crisis caused everything to shut down, I used to enjoy going out to gigs, bars, and club nights in town frequently. Unfortunately, as a woman in my early twenties, I’ve had to deal with my (un)fair share of creeps and uncomfortable encounters.

But I don’t want to dwell on those. I’d rather share the most positive story of late-night drunk strangers. These kinds of stories are rare but they restore much of my lost faith in humanity.

I was walking through the town centre after midnight to get to the bus stop, and there were still many people lingering around the brightly-lit main shopping street. As usual, I was walking quickly and avoiding eye contact. Suddenly, a smiling blur of twirling skirts and loose curls spun into my field of vision.

A clearly inebriated young woman danced over to me and pressed a sunflower into my hand.

Woman: “You’re beautiful!”

And she twirled off.

I’ve never been good with plants, but I kept that flower alive as long as I could. I wish more drunk strangers just wanted to give out flowers and good vibes.
