Pretty Sure I Just Lived A Scene from the Movie "Crash"

It’s Friiiday, Friiiiday, gotta get down on Friiiiiday. Nope, I’m not over that song yet. But yes, it is Friday. That means it’s a happy, happy, joyous, wonderful, glorious day.

Yesterday evening I had an interesting experience that I want to post about. I was out running errands when all of a sudden (literally out of nowhere) it started to pour. I was pissed. I was just walking out of the pharmacy and then all of a sudden the skies just opened up. I was wearing some flops (aka flip flops) and my feet were getting all clammy and cold and I was annoyed. I had also had a rather annoying day. I won’t get into it, but let’s just say I was not in a great mood. So anyway, I was cranky and mad that I was caught in a downpour. The parking lot I was in was massive and I decided to be healthy and park far away so I had a bit of hoofing to do. I was responding to an e-mail on my phone when all of a sudden a random man in a pickup truck pulls up behind me. The man in the pickup truck says something inaudible to me.

I turn around to hear what he’s saying. He repeats it. Turns out he was saying,” Look!” and I look to see what he’s pointing at. He was pointing at this:

This picture seriously does not do it justice. It was the most gorgeous rainbow (with a little mini double rainbow attached to it) I had ever seen in my entire life! It was amazing and beautiful. I instantly whipped out my camera to take a few pictures and he did the same.

“Hop in, we’ll go find a pot of gold at the end of it,” he said with a smile and a laugh. I thought that was a really funny and nice. I thanked him for pointing it out to me. We wished each other a good day and he drove off.

I know that seems like a small moment, but to me it felt like a scene from the movie “Crash.” Have you seen that movie? It’s a great one. It’s been a LOOONG time (too long) since I’ve seen it, but I remember that the movie was filled with moments showing the best and worst of humanity as people interact with each other. Well this moment highlighted the best in humanity. Sure, this guy didn’t do anything extraordinary. But I thought it was really sweet that he pulled up next to me to point out this rainbow and share its awesomeness with me. It really cheered me up and snapped me out of my bad day funk. He was a total rando and he could have just kept driving, but he didn’t. And I thought that was great. So thank you, Mr. Pick Up Truck Man, for doing that for me.
