“You can go ahead of me” and older man says while I am in line at the Safeway. I am kind of in a hurry and only buying a water to get some cash back. “Really? That is super nice, thank you.” I say. As I get to the cashier she looks at me and rings up the water. She asks “Is this together?” I look very quickly at the man’s groceries….Two pints of ice cream, a piece of cake, and some whipped cream. “Yes they are together!” I whisper. He is busy reading the People Magazine. She rings it up with mine. He catches on…”Wait…” I look up and say “Thanks for letting me go ahead, I hope you have a great night” and hand him a Gift Prolific card. As I am leaving I tell him as quick as possible about the project. He loves the idea. And says that him and his partner are celebrating their anniversary. “Well then…I am glad I could be a part. Happy Anniversary to you and your partner!…..How many years?” I ask. “28” he says with a smile. Wow. I love this project.
This is a hornbill. They are probably my favorite bird right now. I really like that they have a rhino type horn…and they are all SO different. Today’s gift was super fun. I really hope that the man check out the blog. Doing nice deeds for people always amazes me. I will remember this one for a long time to come. Take Care.
