So today I had to go to the high school to bring - something - to my kid. It involved me walking down the hall - after I'd been given my appropriate hall pass, which never fails to crack me up - and signing my name illegibly (that way, if a crime is committed, they won't have my signature of attendance, haha).
As I walked down the hall to the (area redacted because it's not important to the story and there's a whole privacy thing here)
two women walked out of the office door. One of them was talking to the one behind her, and as the second one came out of the door, she looked straight at me and said,
"Girl, you know you can't make everyone happy, so you do you", she said to her friend - while looking right at me.
Did I say that part? Probably, but it bears repeating.
I laughed and said, "You know it!" and nodded at her, and she smiled. She said, "I just felt like I should tell you that, you know?"
And I really, really needed to hear those words from a stranger, today.
