Random Act of Kindness



A week or two ago I was driving through a grocery store parking lot when I spotted a pair of legs sticking out of this clothing donation bin. My phone camera isn't the highest quality but if you look closely at the photo on the left you can see the legs in question. Naturally, I immediately assumed they belonged to theguywithoutastupidname, who had dove in to scrounge for clothes from another century. After driving over to say hi I discovered that the scrounger was just a homeless man looking for shoes. We chatted for a minute or so until I realized, to my surprise, that he was nuttier than a fruitcake. Ever heard the saying, "Perception is reality"? Well, by the time he and I parted company this guy's reality was that his new shoes were a gift from me. I graciously accepted his thanks and as I drove away I wondered, as I have so many times before, why God had chosen to bless me with such an awesome gift for kindness.

when you were tormenting that hobo did you happen to see any powdered wigs in that donation bin ?

No wig, but as luck would have it I found an old corset in size XX Rotund that should help with my girlish figure.
