I loved this tale. I love the sentiment and the best part and I chuckled.
“But she pressed it into my hand anyway, and then she took off into the rainy night like an umbrella-giving Batman.
And, well. I stood there in the rain and tried really hard to focus on the fact that this girl had just done something really cool and nice and awesome for a complete stranger stuck in a soaking downpour with no umbrella.
But all I could think was “Well, crap.” It felt like the universe had just told me Stop acting like an idiot and get home. You’ve got work tomorrow.
Sometimes the universe is just no fun at all.”
Your last sentence AWESOME!
