I'll leave you with a short story of my own. I was at a comic convention in Sydney, Australia. I was really excited to meet one of the guests, Brianna Hildebrand (who played 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead' in the Deadpool films). Before going to the con that day, I went to the closest flower store and bought a single rose for her. When i got to the front of the autograph line to meet her I handed her the rose. She seemed to like it. Not a chance meeting like these but there you are.

What do you think of these stories? Do you have a story of your own?
