Every year, one day before the big day, my client does something oh, so generous. Today was the day. They free up the pop machines so you can just push a button, without putting in any money, and get a freebie. (Yes, I said “pop”…I’m from Michigan and that’s what we call it here.) It’s usually $1.25 for a 20-ounce drink. Yet it feels so wonderful to get one for free. Boy, I’m a cheap date.
And the other little thing that made my day? When my son grabbed my fingers and took me for “wok.” It took me a moment to figure out that we were going for a walk. So sweet. So spontaneous. So stuck in my memory for the rest of my life.
