Coffee and More

He looked at me puzzled, "Why?"
"Because this is my random act of kindness for the day. I planned to buy a stranger's coffee today. You're a stranger and that's a coffee," I said pointing at his cup.
He was silent. Then, "Are you serious?" I told him I was and that I started The April Random Acts of Challenge in 2012 and that today he was the recipient of it. He seemed unsure.
I told him it would help me and be his random act of kindness, allowing me to check it off my list for the day. He smiled and told me I could if I wanted to. I gave him a Kindness Card and asked if he'd surprise someone sometime and pass on the card.
The whole time the barista had a huge smile on his face. I put in my card and the guy says, "Oooh, did you mean to pay for my sandwich as well?"
I told him, "Sure." I grabbed the receipt, and smiled at him and the barista saying, "Have a great day." Then, I left.
That was fun!
