Ode to the homeless man of the week

Today right as I was sitting chain smoking and spilling my guts to a close friend about boy problems, a homeless guy asked us for change. We both smiled and muttered "Sorry..." and he smiled back and said "Don't be sorry...I hope you both have a great day." And you know, I felt like he meant it. And then he carefully emptied his water bottle right on the sidewalk in front of us, making a watermark on the sidewalk in the shape of a giant heart. I think I almost blushed, and it made my own heart feel good.
