I was at the gas station perusing the people milling around.
There was a mom & daughter (she was probably 7) walking by their car which was being repaired. Their matching shoes caught my eye. Their matching portly body types next. My immediate thought was that the girl needs to get some exercise. Sure, they both do. But, the mother has many years of bad habits to undo while the girl just needs an activity. An activity that is NOT sitting on her ass, eating chips, & watching TV.
When my focus returned to them, the daughter was walking on a narrow piece of sidewalk as if it were a runway. She had a hand on her hip, her shoulders back, and she walked with a swagger. “Good for her,” I thought. “That’s the only runway you will ever be on, at this rate.”
