I just recently was in a waiting room. There was a father with his two kids. The father left into another room while the kids played in the waiting room. I started to read a little bit of story on my Kindle. Just as I had just started reading it, I looked up and saw the older child standing in front of me. The child had to be about ten years old or younger. He looked at me and said, “Excuse me sir, but can I shake your hand?” I was a little stunned. I looked around the room trying to figure out what prompted this child to ask such a question. This was a very unusual situation for several reasons. First, I don’t know a lot children that have such excellent manners. Second, the child showed a lot of confidence in approaching a stranger. Third, the child was asking to shake my hand. Then I looked at his hand and could tell that he had one of those Hand Buzzers. At that point I figured that it would be ok to shake his hand. He shook my hand and pressed the hand buzzer into my hand. The Hand Buzzer shook and made a buzzing sound. I looked at him and said, “It looks like you got me on that one”. He then quickly went back to playing with his brother. I have to say that boy was rather brave to pick a stranger to pull such a joke on.
