Watching People

This is my husband, Leonard.  Behind that rather serious facade is a man with a fantastic imagination, especially when it comes to people. 
Several times, especially when we're waiting in a mall, or hospital, he has entertained me for hours with his descriptions of people.  "Look, this guy is an old retired lumber yard man. See how he's walking sideways like he's carrying some 2 x4s?"   It was just a running dialog about everybody that happened to walk in front of his radar.  Pretty soon he'd have me laughing so hard I was crying and I didn't dare look at those poor people or I would break out laughing.  He is murder! As someone who I don't think would notice if I dyed my hair purple he has the most keen observational skills of humans and human nature.
Just a little insight into the man I'm married to.                 Diane

Glad to meet you, Leonard. You sound like a hoot! I know you and my sweetie would get along so well.

That was lovely, Diane. I'm glad to read a little more about Leonard, as I've been certain from the bits and pieces you've shared that he must be a very interesting man. I love his sense of humour!

Life must be interesting with a man like that at your side.

I would like to meet your husband. Beacuse I travel alone quite a bit, I find people watching one of life's great pleasures, what fun it would be to hear his observations. Jane x

How fun Diane, and what a great picture! Black and white it for kicks, I bet it would really bring out Len! I got quite the chuckle out of his retired from the lumberyard guy. What a neat sense of humor!

It does take quick thinking and a good imagination to be able to come up with a story line for everyone who walks by. My brain doesn't function in that manner. Very interesting indeed. Hope your day is great. Tammy

That's wonderful. He is a treasure, indeed. And you are just as much so to appreciate his qualities.
