4-Y-O Makes Best Friends With Elderly Man At Supermarket
Uh, get ready to have your heart ripped out of your chest by the sheer CUTENESS that is this story.
Four-year-old Norah was on a turn 'round the supermarket to pick up cupcakes for her birthday when she spotted an elderly man walking past; according to her mum, Tara Wood, the little girl lit up like a Christmas tree and basically decided that they had to be besties.
"She waved excitedly and said 'Hi old person! It's my birfday today!'," Tara wrote in a Facebook post. "He was furrow browed, but his expression softened when he realised she was speaking to him."
The two chatted for a couple of minutes before Norah headed off with her mum but, a little while later, she asked if she could "take a picture with the old man for my birfday?"
"I knew he couldn't have gone far, so we backtracked until we found him," Tara's post continues. "He looked confused and then stunned and then delighted."
The two besties had posed up a storm in what we reckon MAY be the most adorable impromptu photoshoot in history and given each other another hug when "Mr Dan" dropped the truly tear-jerking stuff.
"Thank YOU. This has been the best day I've had in a long time. You've made me so happy, Ms Norah."
BRB, just sobbing uncontrollably into a man-sized Kleenex.
Mr Dan and Norah now hang out on the reg - Tara reckons he's "one of the family now, whether he likes it or not" - and the tot has even been snapped SLEEPING WITH THE FRAMED PHOTO OF THE TWO OF THEM.
Some people are just too pure for this world.
