I bet Eugene is the one of the uniquest place in the United States. Well, a lot of people might be disagree with this, especially for the people from urban areas, like Tokyo. I was one of them. I was. I am from Tokyo, Japan, and I was afraid if I could survive here with nothing for the first few months.
The thought disappeared after I could meet many unique (strange) people who knows how to enjoy their lives.
One day, I was walking in downtown. “Excuse me, Miss. You drop something” said middle- age homeless person. Of course I looked back, but there was nothing. I was confused, and a little embarrassed because I was looking for something I could not find.
“You dropped your smile” the man told it with his big smile. Oh„ when I realized, I was also smiling. Then, I figured out before he talked to me, I might not look happy or fine.
It sounds sketchy, but isn’t it funny? didn’t this story make you chuckle?
He is a homeless. He does not have enough money to eat everyday. If I were in his situation, I must be depressed and give up any future. You?
But he does not forget smiling. The smile makes others smile. I am sure the man has made a lot of people smile.
I just wanted to write and let you know this story to keep this in my memory.
