People are smiling at me and

I'm not quite sure why but I have an idea.
It started about a month ago. First time was when I was in a store and a lady standing in line gave me a big grin, I grinned back just to be friendly. It has happened time and time again and although it was nice, I wondered why it was happening, so I thought back to what has changed in the last few weeks.
The only thing I could think of is that I bought a pair of new sneakers.
The photo is a selfie
Would you smile at a little old lady in new (very comfortable) sneakers?

Why not? They are pretty and flashy, at least the shoelaces are - happy spring sneakers

I like them, WG; do you feel like you could 'run a mile' in them? If so, I'm going to buy some, too! :-)

I love them! They do make me smile.

Lilo, did you mean to speak in haiku? Made me giggle. You're a poet and I know it!

I feel like I could run a mile in these shoes, but I sit down until the feeling goes away.Lol
We just spent three hours on running errands and my feet feel fine.

People most likely smile at you because you have a friendly face and the sneakers are secondary.

If I see a lady wearing the same type of shoe, I'll give her a smile and a nod. Ladies with pink laces are friendly.

When I read "ladies with pink laces are friendly", I thought how many pink laced ladies can there be? And then I had to eat crow... Happily! yesterday evening. I simply grinned from ear to ear as she walked her dogs past my house. I'm sure she thought I was nuts, but it sure made me think of you!

I bought the shoes at a national box store. The sales person said that they had sold hundreds of pair in less than a week.
I bet there are many , many of us pink lace ladies our there.
