Please notice my picture
Some of you may have noticed that I recently changed my profile picture to the above. No, that's not me in the picture. Here's why I did it.
I came across this picture on an entertaining blog that I read occasionally. The author of this blog was using it as a source of humor. Obviously, these are not classically attractive people, and I admit to a small chuckle myself.
Throughout the rest of that day, I kept returning to this picture. Look at it closely. This guy has a kind smile. He probably works hard at a low-paying job where everyone likes him. I'll bet he takes pleasure from simple things that I take for granted. He has a girlfriend with a down-to-earth kindness about her.
They will probably marry and struggle and occasionally fight over bills. I bet he will never hit her, even when he's angry about the money.
I have temporarily changed my profile picture to salute them. I hope they find happiness.
