Good Foods, Good Smile Tags
--by Anon, posted May 27, 2006
A few days later, some friends and I happened to be in her city eating at a restaurant with fabulous desserts. As we pored over the dessert menu, I got it. I turned to my friends and asked them if they wanted to join in on a game of tag. After explaining the idea, they were up to take 15 minutes more after a long day to make someone's day. We ordered an extra dessert, wrote a note and added a smile card and were off... but there was one problem: I had no idea where she was.
Either at home or at work. So it was time to rely on the network. I called up a mutual friend and got him to call her to "see how she was doing" and find out what she was doing at that moment (very subtly of course). She was at work!
We drove up to work and one of my friends became the delivery boy. Dressed business casual from our meeting, he goes in looking for my friend, finds her, doesn't really answer her questions and walks out
saying he's simply a delivery person.
He runs out quickly and I duck as we drive by to make sure she didn't follow him out. Afterwards all of us had this HUGE smile on our face. We felt like we had just planned a surprise party or something.
A simple opportunity turned into a moment many of us can now share.
Thanks for sharing this story
