Conversation overheard in an organic food store on Commercial Drive, Vancouver:
Cashier: Yeah, I hate that guy.
Customer: Hate's a pretty strong word.
Cashier: Come on, everybody hates somebody.
Customer: I'd rather just be happy.
Cashier: Yeah, happy people are cool. I like happy people. But not all happy people. Happy people are so "on" all the time. Are you pro or anti-Olympics?
Customer: Oh, anti. I'm pro-people.
Cashier: Yeah, people are cool. Not all people. Most people. Some.
Cashier: Well, you have a wonderful day!
Customer: You, too.
Inspiring Message of the Day: I will heal the hole in my heart that tells me it's okay to hate. I will ask for freedom from the temptation to judge. I will have compassion for those who are not there yet.
