Don't Forget Your Digital Camera

--by snowflake66, posted Jul 27, 2007
On Saturday I took my fiancee to see Weird Al. Knowing that Weird Al would sign autographs afterward, I told my fiancee to bring the digital camera. :)

As we were waiting on line, I was entertaining all the little ones in front of me. The laughter was wonderful and if a little one wanted his mom, I made sure she connected with her child and went in front of me.

Once we got into the tent, I noticed the woman in front of me frantically searching. She had her nine year old son with her (one of the boys I had been joking with earlier) and I asked her if she would like us to take a few pictures for her. She lit up. "I' m from Westchester and I forgot my camera," she said. I gladly took the pictures, emailed them to her, and received a beautiful thank you email in return.

They couldn't have been any happier. It may have cost me nothing, but it was worth so much.
