13- Receptionist: gave me a big fat smile.
14-Miami subs dude-left it on the window but it was going to fly away..so i climbed up there and another dude grabbed the origami. I said it was for the other dude… Then VJ encounter began..
15- VJ the comedian from Miami Subs Drive thru- with a very serious face, he asks:”is your dad a terrorist?” and i go:” no.

17-Man rapping in SOBE– he watched me doing it. THen asked what it was. I told him, he said :” you did this for me?” I said :” yes”…”oooo that is so sweet”.. when he was wrapping he seemed a bit scary for a second, so I hesitated..Then when i gave him the origami he made the sweetest voice…so just reinforces the power of origami.
