Eating all day on credit

A funny thing that happened Sunday is that on three occasions, people I bought food from, did not have change. So they all told me to just take the food and come back with the money later! This was odd, as I don't think that has ever happened to me before and here it was with three businesses on Sunday.

In the morning, The Bookstore didn't have change for my breakfast bill, so they told me to bring it when I had exact change and they gave me the breakfast. At the Gifford Lane Art Stroll, the conch lady didn't have change, so she told me to come back later when I had the exact amount and she gave me the conch fritters and the gelato guys from Bianco, did the same thing - they didn't have change for my gelato pop and they told me to come back later when I have the money, handing me the pop anyway. 


Loved that. I paid them all back the same day, in fact, at the Gifford Lane Art Stroll I asked Dave Collins for change, my friend Peggy took this photo which looks odd, as if something fishy is going on. Later on I spent a long time with Dave, talking over old and new events in the Grove.
