call me evenstevencharlie . . .
went to the grocer
to pick up a couple things
lady says Would you like my cart?
“Sure, here’s a quarter.”
No quarter. someone gave it to me, now I give to you
“righty O!” I smiled.
At the end of my shopping I saw an old lady in handicapped spot.
I said “Here’s a cart for you.”
Here is my quarter.
“No quarter. Pass it on. evensteven.”
standing in line and the guy in front of me with a stacked cartful says
Would you like to go ahead of me?
I see you
only have two items.

“Why Thank you!” I exclaimed.
“Funny I was just in Target and I told the lady behind ME
to go in AHEAD of me.”
He smiled back Well there you go.
we laughed like a couple of Good Time Charlies.
so nice to be pleasant and enjoy a bit of life with strangers.
