The Love of Strangers
Sometimes I love this country. Yesterday, I walked into my local grocery store. Upon entering, one enthusiastic employee smiled and said, "Strawberry!" I believe he was trying to draw my attention to the strawberries they had on sale, but it sounded like he was calling me a pet name. Without thinking, I replied "Sugar Plum!" He smiled a confused smile (he had no idea what I said) and we both laughed. The randomness of this life never ceases to amaze me.
