Thirst Quencher On Busy Day
--by ganon, posted Aug 28, 2006
I went back into my office, found a box, and went to my desk. I took every bag of snacks and protein bars I could and placed them in the box. Then I went to my mini fridge and put in two kinds of cheese, chilled juice and two cold bottles of water. To top it all off, a Smile card. I placed the box in the shade next to the sleeping man and slipped away.
About five minutes later when I was stopped at a traffic light by that spot he had woken up. He was looking at the box, scratching his head, and looking around. Then I saw him raise his hands towards the sky and say words I couldn't hear. Then he took a long drink of icy water. I felt glad that he had woken up before the sun warmed everything, and was glad that without even knowing it, he had reminded me to appreciate my day so much more.
