Day 274 – The Great Grocery Payback

“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.
