Today I hooked up a new cozy for one of the posts outside the library. As I was stitching it on (quickly!) a young man came over and asked why I was doing it, gesturing towards the post I was working on and the others already cozied up. I'll admit that I knee-jerkclassified him in the "hoodlum" category (based on his manner of dress), which is the category for anyone who'd ever want to rip off a cozy. I thought I was about to hear a bit of criticism.
I answered that I was doing it because I wanted to make the world a more cheerful place.
He leaned over and gave me a big hug and said "That's awwweeesooooommme!"
Not a hoodlum, then, but someone who felt the warm and fuzzy. Nice.
