An Unexpected Nudge During Lunch
--by Steffy, posted Feb 5, 2008
The other day, I was in the checkout line for lunch at school when I realized that I had forgotten my lunch money.
I was freaking out because I hadn't eaten breakfast that day or dinner the night before. I was really hungry -- and I was starting to get dizzy. I stepped out of the checkout line and started putting my lunch tray down, when out of nowhere this kid pulls my arm and nudges me towards checkout line. He tosses a smile card on my tray, smiles at me, and tells the cashier that he's paying for my lunch.
It was so sweet -- it made my day! I never did catch his name but if I see him again at lunch, I'm most definitely returning the favor.
Later that day, I passed the smile card on to a girl who had gotten bookchecked in the hall. I helped her pick up her stuff and get to her class.
It feels like nice to receive kindness and to be kind!
