So yesterday being Friday, Scott was picking up dinner to kick off the weekend. (How lucky am I?) It was Outback Steakhouse (seriously, how lucky am I?) where they bring the food right out to your car. He had a few minutes to wait, because Outback is pretty hopping on a Friday night. When the young woman brought the food out, she said, "Your food has already been paid for."
"Wha-?" said my eloquent husband. "Who?"
"The guy that was in the car that just left."
I'm wondering if the guy saw Scott in uniform and wanted to do something nice--very nice. Or maybe he was planning to do it for whoever was in the car next to his. Either way, I have to say that was the yummiest Outback I can remember enjoying.
So today I'm looking for a way to pay it forward. It was completely delightful to be blessed so unexpectedly, and I hope the guy who did it was smiling all night like we were.
