Sometimes something entirely magical just happens. Like you’re waiting in a long line of traffic, and this vaguely John Cusack-ish guy 2 cars in front of you opens his door and climbs out of the driver’s seat into the street and just stands there for a second, and your internal alarms start buzzing and you eye your surroundings for possible escape routes, but then he throws his head back, feet spread wide, arches his back, and triumphantly fist-pumps the sky. Then he jumps back in his car right as the light changes, and we all inch forward laughing, glad he got the girl or the job or the part, tickled to’ve been extras in his own personal “Say Anything”.
