Sharing

Slice of Life Story Challenge
Slice 7 of 31



Today was a sharing day...one of those things you learned to do in Kindergarten.  I forgot my lunch today and being that it's Friday, I knew I'd need to make a meatless selection from the lovely little Italian grocery store nestled in the heart of North Hill.  i offered to grab something for my principal too as I left the building.  She definitely wanted something.  

I arrived at the lot and already could smell the delicious Italian spices and aromas filling the air as I made my way to the door.  Oh, it smelled so delicious as the swirl of wind raced past my nose when I walked through the doorway...

I walked to the number machine and carefully pulled the next number from the tape..."59".  As I waited in line, I couldn't decide what I wanted because all of the choices looked so good.  They had home-made pizza today along with meatball subs. Good thing I had time to decide on what I wanted before my number was called. 

"59!"

Oh, the pressure was on..."Do you have the tuna noodle casserole that you guys make on Fridays during lent?"

"No, not today honey!"

 So, I purchased a slice of veggie pizza and made my way over to the cold sandwiches...egg salad...then I was checking out and I spied some home-made chocolate chip pecan cookies.  YUM!  I snatched them up and added them to my bill.  I grabbed my bag and headed back to the car and drove quickly back to school.

I dropped the lunch off to my principal and let her pick which food she wanted and she asked for the pizza.  When she asked how much she owed me, I just said, "It's all good...on me today!"

I took the rest of my food and ate.  I stored the leftover cookie in the little office I share with the school psychologist and went off to the classrooms.  When I came back at the end of the day, the psychologist noticed the cookie adding how delicious it looked.  I told her she could have it if she wanted it.   I shared. Funny part is, she would not let me just share the cookie...she wanted to even trade for something else.  So, I swapped the cookie for a diet coke.

Share and share alike...

  2. Even though I just finished eating, you made m mouth water for Italian food. Your slice reminded me of Rober Fulghum's book "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten." If people only would remember those lessons. Like sharing.
