Halloween treat

October 29th, 2009 at 12:56 pm

First of all, I want to thank you for your warm welcome back! I had no idea I would be missed, and I'm grateful for your kind comments.

Last night I arrived home from work to find a bowl of candy and a note at my doorstep. It turned out it was one of those "Secret Santa" type deals; the note says to keep it going by doing the same thing to two other people.

My first reaction was delight. My second one was -- oh, I don't want to do this. I had just stopped at the store on the way home and didn't want to go back. I don't have candy around the house to share. I would have to make copies of the note ... blah, blah, blah.

Then I thought -- I'll just pass on the same candy and the same note to some other doorway. (But then, what if I gave back to the very same person who gave to me? Crass.)

Finally I decided to honor the feeling of delight it gave me and to continue in the spirit of the thing. So today I'll go over to the cafeteria on campus and buy some candy bars. I have some fancy hot chocolate packets and Quiznos coupons at home that I can throw in. That way I won't be spending too much, but still, hopefully, delighting someone else.

Such are my financial decisions, these days! Stay tuned for my next dilemma -- should I go downtown for a networking event or stay home? I'll let you know. Smile

    You were Boo'd! I think it is great you decided to pass on the generosity. Enjoy!

    We were Boo'd as well, and my 2nd grader was the "target". He loved it. A quick stop to the dollar store yields plenty of fun and cheap goodies so you can boo in return!
