nice nashville

I went to get my hair cut today. It's nothing dramatic, just shorter and lighter...anyhow, on my way through the mall I started coughing, I mean really coughing. I checked in and the lady who was going to cut my hair was still busy. I sat there, still coughing...and coughing.
And when I began to cough in earnest and actually couldn't breathe, the lady at the front desk told me there was a coke machine out in the mall. I think she felt bad for me. I left and headed that way hoping there was a water fountain nearby too cause I knew I didn't have enough change for a pop.
There was no water fountain but there was a nice lady there in her wheel chair buying a pop. She offered me her change and between that and what I scrounged from the bottom of my purse I had enough for a Dr. Pepper. I thought that was just so nice. I mean. Some really tall wild haired girl comes coughing your way and you give her your change?

It's nice to know that there are nice people in the world.

I used to either leave change in the pop machine or put the amount for a pop in the machine, so that the next person to come along would have a pleasant surprise & hopefully I would make his or her day!
