Hi, It was a lovely sunny day yesterday. I thought ice cream sounded good for lunch. DQ (Diary Queen) it was!
Typically I go to McDonald’s- ordering the Bacon Ranch salad with grilled chicken. It’s a pretty good salad and not too expensive. But as I said, it was a bright sunny and rather warm day in November and ice cream was on my mind. I had no thoughts of doing a 101 in 1001 goal today. As I placed my order and pulled forward, I noticed a car pull up to the menu behind me. My car window was down and I could tell it was an older man placing his order. Listening I hear the chicken strip dinner with extra gravy. He was the only person in the car. My mind racing with thoughts I was curious about the little old lady who wasn’t with him.
Questions like: Is he married; Do they have children; Is she okay and so many more. Then I thought, I should buy his lunch. And I did! What a wonderful feeling it was to do this. I asked the DQ employee to tell him to have a wonderful day! The employee even smiled and told me he would pass it on to the elder gentleman.
Score. I felt good, the drive-thru employee smiled and the elderly man behind me received a complimentary lunch.
Please note- if I have inspired you to create your own 101 in 1001 list, let me know. I will be able to cross off #101!
Take care and best wishes!
