treats to treat
first I got treated
with a coupon for 5 free little treats. They look like little doughnut holes
I ate one right away.
then I sat down in one of the comfy chairs at Nordstrom, to have another.
Along came a little fellow and his mother.
He could not take his eyes off my little box as his mother walked briskly along
I heard a little chuckle. It was the lady beside me.
We both smiled
" we know what he was thinking" she laughed.
I ate one more little treat and was ready to head home.
" Would you like one?" I asked the lady
She smiled " what are they?" she responded
I showed her and held the box out to her.
"Well,yes I would, thank you " she said,
to my surprise and delight.
"I have never had them"
"Well", I said, "I haven't either. They were part of a little packet of coupons from Valentine's Day and I just pulled one out and walked up to the counter and asked if I could redeem it.
Sorry, you will have to go downstairs, that coupon is for Cinnabon, we are Auntie's pretzels." ( he was very polite )
So I did and all the pink was gone from my cheeks as I explained what happened, and the clerk told me it happens often. Same corner, different floors. :)
So, we laughed some more, and I said goodbye,
I feel warm inside.
I live an exciting life.
