New Friend

Overheard at Starbucks: Actually, it's an encounter at Starbucks. With a young girl of Middle Eastern descent who couldn't stay away from Louie. (I'll admit, he is a crowd pleaser, boasting fans of all ages). She stood right next to him on his chair and pet him, giggling when he'd lick her hand. Then she scooted closer to me and stood with her hand resting on my arm. It was really sweet, except I had writing to do. This girl was so friendly and fearless and eager to receive and give affection in a way that gives you hope. Her parents were worried she was bothering me, but nothing could have been further from the truth. Not after I got full use of my arm back, anyway.
