People from your lives who you like and why you like them

really like this girl at work cos she drinks a can of red bull she’s brought from home at lunch instead of a drink from the canteen. i don’t drink red bull but still liked it about her as soon as i saw it. also she’s from Finland

My nephew, 100%. He was born with a cleft palate and why it was a very trying time for my sis-in-law and bro during birth and when he had to have surgery at 9 months old and recently had another at age 3, you would never know it seeing the joy he has in everyday life. My brother was very much worried about him being bullied early in life because he might not look like other kids but he has such a great demeanor at such a young age all the young kids love him. Life is a beautiful thing sometimes.

If we’re talking about people we don’t really know, there’s a conductor who works on my train to work sometimes who does the announcements in a comedy style (e.g. he’ll pretend it’s an aeroplane and do it in the style of the captain doing the pre-flight announcement). Always cheers me up, that.

When we first moved here there was a woman we’d pass coming from the train station every morning as I walked my daughter to the bus for school. She was always listening to music but always smiled at my daughter. For whatever reason her fashion, look, etc always convinced me she must be French. I guess maybe she looked a bit like Audrey Tautou. One morning she passed us having a phone conversation speaking with the broadest Aussie accent ever. Quite the shock! Still like her for giving my daughter a smile every morning, though.
