I ordered a glass of wine and a burger at the bar in Michigan City when I went there to watch the sunset a few weeks ago. I was tired from the drive, hot in the sun and hungry when an older man sat next to me. He ordered a glass of water, and started saying things out loud, maybe to me or just maybe to the universe. At first I was annoyed. I just wanted to sit and relax until my burger came. I looked at my phone, and maybe nodded or said, “Hmm” to some of his statements. After 20 minutes of that, I realized that I was not being a kind person. This man wasn’t asking me for anything; I was in a safe environment. I looked over at him and just realized that maybe he was lonely. We talked a little as I ate my burger, and I encouraged him to visit his daughter and his mother. When I finished eating and got up to leave, he thanked me for listening. I told him to take care, and left realizing that it really doesn’t take much to just be nice.
