Chance Encounter Brings Joy

I was delighted listening to his stories about when he lived in Poland, where he is from, and how he was a welder that got payment only with food and wine. :) He proceeded to tell me very interesting facts about crows he had seen on National Geographic, and about how happy he is in this neighborhood where he can walk everywhere and doesn't even need a car to get around.
We chatted for about 30 minutes and then we proceeded to part ways. On his way back in, he was sure to let me know how I had made his day by chatting with him. He said he's old and just talks to himself everyday.
During the conversation, he told me what unit he lives in, in the building and I was so happy about that! I decided to bake a delicious quiche and some peanut butter cookies to share with him, and chat with him some more. In the meantime, I want to ask him if he would like me to visit from time to time, I'm sure he'll love the company and the human interaction:)
So I wanted to share my story, because not only I made his day, he made mine! It was the highlight of my day, and now I can't wait to surprise him with my food! :):):)
