21 Day Challenge: A Different Dinner Date
--by Jellere, posted May 11, 2014
The kids were indeed surprised and delighted to know that I was actually treating them to a legitimate meal this time. They enjoyed being able to step inside the restaurant [when the security guard would come close, I made it clear that they were with me] and order for themselves. I bought each of them 1-piece Chicken Mcdo, a regular Sprite, extra rice and fries for all. We ended up eating outside on the floor, still, but it was worth it. They shared more of their dreams and lives than they ever had [all those times I dropped by for a quick conversation with them] before during the meal, and they really were good kids. Smart too.
Erap, Daniel, RJ, and Gideon, had a great time with you guys. Thank you!
PS: People were smiling at them! Usually, people ignored them because of their routine begging. This time, a couple of women even offered them more drinks. The kids told me they haven't eaten this well in such a long time. One kid even put some rice in the gravy container and declared that he would be bringing it to school for lunch the next day!
