Eight years ago, in New York City,, I’m with my family sitting at a coffee place in the lounge. My parents are talking amongst themselves so I’m zoning out and scanning the room.
Out of the corner of my eye I spot an Asian man obviously waiting for his wife and he’s rocking in his chair with drink in hand.
All of the sudden he tilts too far back and starts to go backward but he suddenly catches himself and almost drops his drink but not before stopping the chair from slamming to the ground so it was silent.
He looks around and catches me smiling. He instantly replies with the biggest grin while toasting his drink in a “A-ha!” manner.
I still think about that scene. So wholesome.
