Not fussed with the selection at work today I headed up the street for some nigiri sushi. The food court was packed with Christmas shoppers but I spotted the last vacant table and swooped like a sushi bearing magpie.
I was munching away on my very yummy tuna and rice when a harried mum wheeled her pram up and asked if the seats were free and if I’d mind if she sat down. “Sure.” I said. She sat down, dug out lunch for her son (who was way too old and big to be in that pram) and composed herself. She was fussing around with pink Donut King bags and it took me a second to realise she had pushed one in my direction.
“Would you like this donut? I just got it for free.”
I finished my last piece of sushi, thanked her and left her the table.
You know, the best sort of donut is a surprise donut. Thanks nice lady.
