On the kindness of strangers. Okay that’s not really true. I really try to stay away from strangers. You know, “stranger danger” and all that.
Today I was pleasantly surprised by strangers.
On my three-mile walk/run this morning a lady runner (who clearly did more running than walking)slowed down her pace to talk to me. She asked me where my hat and shirt were from, Flying Pig of course, and we had a brief but fun conversation about marathons. We talked about how it’s nice to do a marathon where your family lives. That way you don’t have to worry about transportation, food, where to sleep… She said she’s always wanted to do the Flying Pig and will look into it again.
Then…I went to Michael’s. This truly is blogworthy news, I promise. Ok not really. So I went to Michael’s to pick up some things. While waiting to check out the lady in front of me asked if I had the 20% off coupon. I said no. So she gave the checkout girl her 20% off code for me to use. Sweet! I know it’s only 20%, but I got five bucks off my purchase. Thanks lady in front of me!
Have you been watching the Olympics? I have the DVR on overdrive! So far my Phelps prediction isn’t going to well…
But, I still have faith…he can do it!
