Bowled Over [Hey, You!]

Illustration by Bob Aul

You are the young man going into a Flame Broiler trying to get some lunch. As you were walking in, a random lady caught your attention and had an indistinguishable conversation with you. You bought your food and added something more to your usual order. You left discreetly and gave that woman who grabbed you at the door your extra chicken bowl. You never stopped to ask her why she needed lunch or why the store owner gave both of you weird looks. You just bought her a meal, even if you may have your own student loans to worry about. Thank you for your random act of kindness and for acting without hesitation!
