Potatoes

Today I was in a meeting (lol) with my friend before she goes on maternity leave.  The daughter of one our friends walked into the office eating a purple sweet potato. My friend said "I want one, go get one for me." but it was said in a nice way.

The girl smiled and skipped away like young girls do and came back a few minutes later with a whole sweet potato and plunked into my friend's hand, smiled and scampered off.  My friend got up, went to the kitchen and returned, handing me half a sweet potato.

I said thanks and we continued our meeting.



It was nice to be included and shared with.  This happened on my last day before a trip, so there could have been resentments about me leaving and excuses to exclude me.
