I just got off a plane and landed in the nicest cab in San Fran.  The cabbie turns to me as we are pulling out of SFO and says "Hello, lady!  How was your flight?  How is your life?" 

I laughed.  How cute.  How was my flight coupled with how is my life.  Well, great, thanks.  And then we talked about how his life is pretty darn good too.  Perhaps he was earning his tip, but at the end of the ride he said "Have a great day.  You have brightened mine!"

Mercy!  We should all be so pleasant.
