We got to the store and headed in, looking for winter coats. ... ... ... No winter coats. Really?!? Really. I didn't see any anyway. Hmm. We continued to browse the store and the kids picked out books they wanted to buy. I noticed an older man shopping too. He looked through the houseware section, he was in the sweater section and finally I noticed him picking out a pair of pants. He's the one, I thought. We hustled over there and I rather forwardly handed him the money and note and said "This is for you!!" ..... "Why?" he asked. Suspiciously and not unreasonably in my opinion!!! I explained that we were doing 25 Acts of Kindness and he said "Nooo.... buy the baby some formula!" ( as a FERVENT Breastfeeding advocate I thought that was hilarious!! ) "We're fine there..." I said "She's a breastfed baby!" ... this left him no wiggle room so he took the money and smiled. "Thank you!" he called out. "I'll remember this Act of Kindness and pay it forward" .....!!
