This morning at around 10:30 AM I had to rush to Whole Foods to buy some flour for our traditional Sunday pancakes.
When I came up to the cashier, he said, “Good morning.” I looked at him—a big young dude—our eyes met for a second and I echoed, “Good morning!”
He bagged my groceries, including the flour, and as I was ready to leave, he suddenly handed me a chocolate. I thought he mixed something up. “It’s not mine. I didn’t get the chocolate,” I explained. He responded simply, “This is for you. I kept it for the first person this morning who will look at me.”
Driving back home I thought, “This free chocolate, the sweetness of a brief human connection, is always available. And it may even come with zero calories.”
So get your free chocolate today.
