My Secret Addiction and Life Just Saying

Confession time! I have a secret addiction. I’m not sure how it happened…I am addicted to iced tea. Yep, not going to lie…I hit a drive thru almost everyday to get a large, “half cut” (half sweet) iced tea. I usually go to Chick-Fil-A, however, if I’m feeling especially tight I’ll go to McDonald’s. If I’m with my husband I go all out and hit McAlister’s. They have the best tea, but no drive thru. I’m a lazy addict.
Today was no exception. I was out running errands and
Chick-Fil-A was on my list of stops. I did my thing at the speaker and pulled up to pay. It was taking the car in front of me a little extra time to take care of business, but no worries, I had plenty of time. I had my $1.90 in hand (all change) as I pulled to the window, and the young lady handed me my tea and said, “The man in front of you paid for yours too”! Wait, what? Wow! That has never happened to me. I waved to the gentleman as he drove off and yelled thank you, though my windows (and his) were up, but I truly don’t think he saw or heard me. That was cool! I so want to do that one day, I’m going to pay it forward.
Has that ever happened to you?

And I can’t let the day pass by without mentioning that tomorrow my blog gets a new home AND a new name. Yep, I have mixed emotions. It feels sort of like moving day in every sense of the word, except I don’t have a bunch of boxes sitting around. life just saying is my first blog…though not my only, but the other ones just sort of sit dormant. I feel a little sad that it is over. But onward and upward I shall go. Looking forward to a new home, new adventures and a new name!

  1. That is awesome. Love when people do things like that makes you feel like there is hope for humanity yet. Can’t wait to see your new blog. =)

  2. What a kind thing for him to do. We’ve done that before, but it’s been a while. Guess it’s time to step up and do it again.

    Best wishes with your new blogging home. I hope it turns out wonderfully for you.

    Happy Sharefest. Have a lovely weekend.

  3. AWWW! Love this story! We had this happen to us a few months ago, so we paid for the car behind us and as we were pulling away we could see the car behind us paying for the one behind them. 🙂 It was great! Paying it forward rocks! Stopping by SITS Saturday Sharefest.

    • Thank you so much. I didn’t think about doing so at the time. I later thought it would be cool to have a day where everyone did that, but no way to organize it and some would def take advantage. It was fun partying with you this morning!
