A Literally Sweet Thing To Do

, , , , | Hopeless | June 21, 2018

(I’m with my family at Hershey Park for the day. It is also my youngest sister’s tenth birthday. As part of her gift, I got her a small hair ornament that looks like a tiara that says, “Happy Birthday.” We have just finished a tour, and at the end an elderly man is handing out small Hershey bars — one for each person.)

Man: *squinting at my sister’s tiara* “What does that say?”

Me: “‘Happy Birthday.’”

Man: “How old are you today?”

Sister: “Ten!”

(The man proceeds to slowly count out and perfectly line up ten chocolate bars, then pushes them toward my sister.)

Man: *smiling* “Don’t tell anyone I did this. This is on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Hershey. They would want you to have this on your birthday.”

(One of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen!)
