A friend of ours just had a baby and lives out of town. Meals had been organized for their family and one of the meal preparers had called to say they couldn’t deliver it. Would I mind taking it by on my way home since we live close by?
As she was providing the meal and giving heating directions, she apologized they couldn’t deliver it personally. Her husband had been called out to trap a wolf and they couldn’t make it. I took the food and said thank you and didn’t think twice about her comment.
Only later did I laugh and think, how many US citizens hear that in everyday conversation?!
