  1. Star struck(追星族)

  I have been star struck since I was a little girl, so I was delighted and practically speechless not long ago when I spotted the actor Ernest Borg nine walking in my direction on New York's Fifth Avenue. "Why, you're Ernest Borg nine!" I managed to blurt out.

  "Yes," he said, nodding politely, "I know."

  

  2. Keep the Change

  One sweltering day, I was scooping ice cream into cones and told my four children they could "buy" a cone from me for a hug. Almost immediately, the kids lined up to make their purchases. The three youngest each gave me a quick hug, grabbed their cones and raced back outside. But when my teen-age son at the end of the line finally got his turn to "buy" his ice cream, he gave me two hugs. "Keep the changes," he said with a smile.

  3. Persistence

  Returning from a golf outing, my husband was greeted at the door by Sara, our four-year-old daughter. "Daddy, who won the golf game? You or Uncle Ritchie?"

  "Uncle Ritchie and I don't play golf to win," my husband hedged. "We just play to have fun."

  Undaunted, Sara said, "Okay, Daddy, who had more fun?"

  4.Treat

  As a rookie in the Atlantic City, N.J., Police department, I was assigned a beat on the boardwalk. Hardly a day went by when I didn't come upon a child who had become separated from his parents.

  One afternoon, I spotted a small boy standing alone, obviously lost. I tried to gain his confidence - I took him to the nearest ice-cream stand and bought him a cone. Time passed with no sign of the boy's parents, so the next step was to call for a patrol car to take him to headquarters. I told the small fry to stay put while I went to the call box. When I returned, he was nowhere in sight.

  Within minutes, the car arrived, and one of the patrolmen asked me where the child was. I felt stupid; it's humiliating to say you've lost a lost child. But I told the officers what had happened and gave a description of the boy. "What did you treat him?" asked one of the men.
