After about ten minutes of waiting at the bus stop this morning, I thought I might like to get my SmarTrip card out to be ready for the tardy bus. Then I realized like a numbnut that I left my wallet and keys at home. The guy that waits at the stop with me most mornings handed me the buck and a quarter it costs to get on the bus. Within seconds, the bus came.

"How'll you get through the day?" he asked. "Here, take this $20."
"Oh, I'll be fine," I say.
But he shoved it my way and I accepted, offering to pay him back the next morning.
That was nice, don't you think?
