“What’s making you go from a frown to a smile in a nanosecond?”

“Nothing specific. It’s just the fact that someone checks up on me.”

“Is it someone special?”

“No, not really.”

“Then, how come you are grinning from ear to ear?”

“Oh, I have that smile every time I get the ‘A New Message’ notification.”

“Why so?”

“Because in the middle of work and especially when I’m having a bad day, that little ping on my phone changes my mood instantly. Any text from anyone makes me happy that someone thought about me.”
