There are moments that can just completely blow me away. I had one of those moments Saturday. I was messing around at the faire out in the street, just wandering and talking to people and their kids as I seem to do a lot of anymore. As I was sauntering along I heard an excited “SEE I TOLD YOU HE WOULD BE HERE!!!” I turned to my right to see a family come towards me. I greeted them, not remembering at all who they were… The father realized this quickly and filled my memory gap. “We are so glad we found you here, after we saw you last Friday at Tall ships.” Memory Jogged, I began to talk to them and asked them how they were enjoying their day. I asked them what they had seen, and what their favorite things were. Through the course of the conversation I found that this was their 1st visit to Bristol and it was prompted due to my interaction with them last Friday. Before we finished talking I got down really low and whispered to their daughter, “Is it safe?” Her eyes lit up and her head nodded extremely fast. then she said “I have it hidden like you said! It’s safe!” “Good lass! You keep it safe for me and you make sure you have a great time here today for me ok!” “OK!!! I WILL!” At that I excused myself and sauntered off to regain my composure.
Holy crap… No rain, no cold, no flooding can ever top a moment like that.
