I am ashamed to say that the taxi driver's singing got to be a bit irritating. Lending his voice to a song or two would have been fine, but I think I listened to the entire CD once and another half of it before I got dropped off. It was a long ride. He wasn't a bad singer, but he was no professional. Personally, I get bashful if someone hears me sing even part of a song, because my voice is awful. I admire the taxi driver for having the confidence to sing so freely. He was clearly enjoying his music.
Today, while in the shopping mall elevator with a lady, I was checking myself out in the mirror as we were moving between floors. Feeling fat, I was being very critical of myself. As we were getting out, the lady turned to me and said, "Don't worry, you look good." Embarrassed, I thanked her. Sometimes strangers are very aware of what is going on around them and know just what to say.
