A Letter to the Strange Man in Dartmouth Who Randomly ‘Blessed’ Gazelle’s Vehicle
Can we have a serious conversation for a minute? I'm in my head and could use some positive clarity. I wasn't going to bring this up, but it's been a couple of days since something strange happened to me and I need to get it off my chest.
On Tuesday, September 20th, I made my way over to the gym I'm a member of in Dartmouth. I was going about my normal business, fighting to find the motivation to get through a cardio session, when the unexpected occurred. The elliptical I was on faced outward toward the parking lot so I could see my SUV clear as day as well as the other cars around me.
Out of nowhere, this older gentleman walked in front of my car, stopped, pulled out a rosary, faced my car, and started praying. He had to be in his late '60s or early '70s, and I'd never seen him before. What was weird was that he only did it to my vehicle before walking off towards Route 6.
"What in the world?!" I thought to myself. It's been three days and I'm still trying to process everything that I witnessed. Was this a good or bad omen? That's the crossroads I'm currently at in my mind.
You see, the problem with the world today, is that we think the worst of anyone or situation. It dilutes the fact that perhaps people are just trying to do something nice for others.
My Grandfather would always tell me to "Watch out for the other guy" every time I left his house. Of course, he was referring to the drivers on the road all around me. It makes me wonder if this was some kind of sign or message from above. Again, these are the thoughts that I've been processing, hoping for answers or anything at all.
At the end of the day, it's probably nothing, but it still makes a person wonder. I'm open to any input so feel free to email me at Gazelle@Fun107.com or shoot the Michael and Maddie Show a message on the free Fun 107 app.
