The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
Hi there! How have y’all been? I’ve been good. Been busy getting my family over the flu we acquired over Thanksgiving weekend. Got most of my shopping done from my couch during that time. Yay me.
Finally finding time to sit and blog properly again. One of these days, it might just stick!
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG:
I finally posted my short review of The Trouble With Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones.
THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG:
I know I’m going to review the books I read during the HoHoHo Read-a-Thon. It’s three books in one post. Does that bug you when I do that? They’re short reviews, I promise!
I’ve gotten a few books over the last month. These are the most recent few 😉
If you’re not too shy, I’ve got a challenge for you. Next time you’re in line at McDonald’s or any other cheap fast food restaurant, why don’t you pay for the person behind you, too? I’m embarrassed to say I JUST tried this last Veteran’s Day.
My first try wasn’t perfect but this is how it worked: I had noticed that there were two older men in the car behind me and I totally profiled them and guessed them to be veterans of war, we have a lot of those here. I got up to the first window and, thinking these two guys just probably ordered their almost free cups of black coffee, I asked the lady if she thought the guys behind me were veterans and could I pay for their meals. I was so awkward but the people at my McDonald’s, sadly, know me well so they’re used to it and are super duper nice.
The “veteran’s” bill was $16! I kind of freaked because I wasn’t expecting that. OOPS! But in for a penny and all that. Why not, right?! Even if they aren’t veterans, I hopefully made their day.
And you know what? I felt good after that.
I drove off, didn’t wave, didn’t even look at them.
My second attempt was much better… under $5 I’m happy to say. I was prepared that time with a $5 bill in case the bill was higher. I would just pay a little of their bill… maybe?
The people at McDonald’s tell me that quite frequently when someone pays for the person behind them, it spreads to the next person and they pay it back, and so on and so on… How cool is that? Give it a try sometime if you’re feeling brave.
Enjoy the season…
