Each week I spend my Monday morning standing on a footpath somewhere annoying the strangers that walk past, rain or shine. This is for our weekly Word on the Street segment where we try to ask an interesting question and hear what you, the readers, have to say. I try to get this done first thing in the week so I can file it away and forget about it. Anybody who has ever approached strangers in the street to take part in any sort of poll will understand it is not the most joyous job.

So with my camera round my neck and notepad in hand I head off, normally in a grumpy mood about having to come back to work after the weekend. But what always surprises me is how quickly that mood turns around after speaking to a couple of strangers. These are people I would have most likely have never spoken to and will probably never meet again. Some people seem to have the sunniest perspective on life and often make me realise that whatever is concerning me that particular day is not worth the worry. So my advice for this week is talk to strangers, say hi to the person next to you on the bus and chat with the sales assistant at Farmers. We are all human and they may put a smile on your face.

Hi, my name is Molly and there is nothing that I enjoy more than a stroll down the beach. Albeit my hatred for the water or for the cold means the rest of my leisure time is spent resting with my favourite sheepskin rug in my Berhampore home. After the death of my arch nemesis, Noisey the cat, two years ago, I no longer spend my entire day glaring into the garden. My enthusiasm when meeting new people can put some people off but most people appreciate my up-front style of doing business. As I get older I love to snuggle up on the coach and catch-up with my favourite show, Coronation Street, before heading to bed for an early night. Do you think your pet is super cute and needs to be shared with Cook Strait News readers?
