Mercury in Cancer

How delightful.

Having a sweet week.  Wanted to document this event before I forget.

I was at my favorite restaurant for dinner.  As I waited at the take-out counter for a leftovers box,  a little old man standing near me said in a voice holding a bit of a Celtic burr, "Have a great weekend."  I turned to see who he was talking to, and he was completely focused on me.  He had a sweet face with a button nose and chubby pink cheeks.  He wore a knitted cap with a strand of red running through it.    I smiled and said, "I will if you will."  He smiled and said again, "Have a great weekend."  So I said, "I plan to, and I hope you do, too."

And then he said, "You have many good things coming your way."

I can't remember what I said, I was so surprised and so charmed.  Something like, "Thank you, I think so, too."

And then he was gone.

I told my sister the story.  She said he must have been a leprechaun.

I think perhaps he was.

It was certainly a magical moment.
