The other day, I was going to Starbuck's to meet with Lilla/Lily. There was a homeless dude with a shit-ton of these Street Roots papers he was selling. I had no money on me, having put it all into my bank account a few minutes before, but I didn't feel right just going by him without looking at him, like Alex would when he's fronting. So I said, "I wish you luck!"
Hours later, when leaving Starbuck's to go home, I saw the same guy again, very few papers left, and he grinned at me and gleefully said, "Thanks for the wish, it really helped me out!"
Sometimes a little kindness is all it takes to help.
