I went for a walk today and this guy pulled up beside me to ask for directions, so I told him and before I could leave he stopped me again and said, “I noticed you aren’t smiling. Now why aren’t you smiling?” I didn’t know what to say so I just said I was cold. He asked for my name and age, which I told him, then he said “Wow, you should be smiling.” That made me smile which made him really happy and he said, “Ah, see, there you go. You’re smiling. Have a wonderful day.” Then he drove off.
Sometimes, I really like people. Especially people who are happy about others being happy.
Q: You have a younger brother, Ryland. Doesn’t he want to be in the band?
RIker: When we started R5 he just wanted to be an ordinary teenager. But now he’s become a DJ and tours with us!
