A Delayed Thumbs-up

 I went to McDonald's this Sunday morning and a Hispanic family came in with a boy that was about 11 years old, he was dressed in a light colored grey suit with a vest and a white shirt. His hair was perfectly gelled up, he was very handsome in his suit. I don't think it's too off base to assume that the family was on their way to church. I like boys in suits because it is not as common to see as boys in casual clothes. The boy got back in line and I gave him a thumbs up and he looked behind him thinking that I wasn't giving him the thumbs up.

 On his way out, I made eye contact with him and nodded my head, he smiled back at me with a nice set of white teeth and gave me a quick thumbs up so I gave him thumbs up once more.

 The moment was over like that, we never spoke, I don't know his name, he doesn't know mine but it was nice nonetheless. Will I see him again? It certainly is possible if he lives in the neighborhood but it will likely always be in passing but even if I don't see him again we still had that quick moment of acknowledging each other.
