So last week the hubs calls during work & wants to know if I have eaten lunch.
Nope- so we meet to eat.
As we are going to our seats I see a gentleman that makes deliveries at the shop where I work. We say our howdy's & sit & eat.
When we try to pay for our meals we are told that a friend of ours paid for our lunches.
We were like "wow, that was so nice!" (yup, delivery guy paid for our lunches)
So today the hubs calls again... wanna go to lunch?
So we get there and it is SUPER busy! No were to sit... while waiting for a table to be cleared I notice a man standing alone waiting for a table too. When our table was cleared for us to sit down, I asked him if he was meeting anyone for lunch. He said no, so I told him he was welcome to share our table. And he did. He was a nice man. Told us about his family & how he is retired from the US Postal Services & our jobs & about his grandchildren & our grandchild & children. We talked about his wife being a retired music teacher & how we play Bluegrass music & church. It was a nice lunch with a complete stranger.
As the waitress got other tables cleared he started to move to an open table. We assured him that he was not disturbing us and we would like him to stay and visit more. (we saw no need for him to have to eat alone) He stayed and we got to visit more.
As our meal & lunch time was coming to an end a friend of ours came walking by (he also plays in a Bluegrass band). We chatted with him for a bit. Our new-found friend was getting up to leave... we told him we really enjoyed meeting him and said our goodbyes & he invited us to come and visit him in Eldorado (south arkansas) kewl huh!?
I got our ticket to pay so we could both get back to work and headed for the cashier... I remembered I had one of our Bluegrass Family business cards in my purse and caught our new friend at the door and gave it to him & told him to call the next time he was passing thru our town and we would get together again.
I went back to the table and got money from the hubs to cash our ticket out & the waitress came by to get it, but came back with it and said that the other waitress said that the man that was sitting with us paid for our lunch.
Now how sweet is that?! He was so nice.
Someone buying our meals two weeks in a row... is a true blessing.
Both times the men left before we could thank them.
Just wanted to share a lil bit of amazing acts of kindness for our day and time.
Everyone at work is FREAKING out about this health screen.
No one likes to be told their BMI states over 29.9 and they need to shape it up.
Then they check your blood pressure and say you should be 130/85 or better.
CRAP lady... you just told me I am fat.
Wouldn't your blood pressure be up if you were told that?
Now you tell my LDL Cholesterol should be 130 or less.
AND now you tell me I can't even have a
or I will fail the Tobacco/Nicotine test.
OMGAW! I would not want to have your job lady.
All kidding aside...
We were required to do the Health Screening last year. This year the two scores will be compared.
I do not know which will triumph!
I know my BMI is better, because I weigh less!
I've been watching my Blood Pressure and it is staying the same. Which is GOOD!
My LDL Cholesterol... I do not know. I just eat what I want as always. Never anything fried... well rarely fry anything. I'm a baker & steamer kind of gal!
Guess I'm different than my co-workers... I am excited to see the difference in last years numbers and this years numbers!
Good or bad or just balancing as before?
My hubs has to take the screening too this year, this will be his first year to do the screening and he is nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!
