Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap


Two funny stories about my deeds which I am still doing, but not bragging blogging about on a daily basis. 

First one: On Fridays, I drive-thru McDonald's on my way into work for coffee. I get up to the counter, pay for my own order and then wait awkwardly. " that guy done?" Pointing at the car behind me. "Uhhh yeah." (He's thinking I'm an idiot). "Uhhh....can I pay for his, too?" He's truly baffled. I blurt out "I'm doing good deeds for Lent!" Nervous laugh (I'm the champion of the nervous laugh).  McDonald's employee: "Well, I have to get a special code because I'm swiping your card twice." Okay, okay. I get the receipt: $1.84. Sheesh. I hope it at least made him smile. 

Second deed: My husband got on the computer after work last night and was checking his email.  I walk by and all I see is Immediately in a tizzy: "What do you think you're looking at?" And I look He's signing up to be a bone marrow donor. Crap. 

We both signed up for a friend, someone who was in his class at the fire academy. I found out just a few minutes ago that he passed away today. So so so tragic. My heart is broken for his whole family, of course, but especially his momma. Can't even imagine.
