Reach out.

Way to make me smile #807.

Be an old, gray-haired woman, on a plane with a couple other friends.
Be already seated as I attempt to make it to my seat, slowly.
Say something to your friend that I can't quite make out.
As I stop right near where you are, reach out and tug on the leg of my jeans, then look up at me and say, "I like your jeans!" before you and your friends politely smile and laugh like only a group of older women can.
You've done it. You've surprised me. And I won't be able to help myself.
That smile will be immediate.
Today, you win, for all kinds of reasons ... and I thank you.

Nothing is better than unsolicited compliments from unexpected sources.
