Trust From A Stranger

I also asked Jack if they were interested in a jar of special peanut butter I make (with unsweetened coconut added), but he declined. I then decided to stop for an iced oat milk latte at Peets Coffee.
The first thing Ashleigh said was, "I love your shirt!" Then she showed me her tattoo (Aum), which was on my "be love" shirt. I asked Ashleigh what her favorite thing to put on toast was.
She replied, "almond butter." "What about peanut butter," I asked? She said she just enjoyed eating that by the spoonful. I offered her my special recipe and since she liked coconut, too, she was thrilled!
Shen then offered me a coupon for a free drink on my next visit.
I find it extra special when a stranger accepts something that I make. It's not even about the gift, but more their trust in me, as I sometimes receive a polite decline, instead.
