Email sent to me by my brother, and yes it is one of those that have Fw:Fw:Fw:Fw:Fw:Fw:Fw: Read On Anyway ;-) Subject: Cookies Subject: Cookies Anyone?? A woman was waiting At an airport one night With several long hours Before her flight. She hunted for a book In the airport shop, Bought a bag of cookies And found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book But happened to see, That the man sitting beside her, As bold as could be, Grabbed a cookie or two From the bag in between, Which she tried to ignore To avoid a scene. So she munched the cookies And watched the clock, As the gutsy cookie thief Diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated As the minutes ticked by, Thinking, "If I wasn't so nice, I would blacken his eye." With each cookie she took, He took one too, When only one was left, She wondered what he would do. With a smile on his face, And a nervous laugh, He took the last cookie And broke it in half. He offered her half, As he ate the other, She snatched it from him And thought... ooh, brother! This guy has some nerve And he's also rude, Why he didn't even show Any gratitude! She had never known When she had been so galled, And sighed with relief When her flight was called. She gathered her belongings And headed to the gate, Refusing to look back At the thieving ingrate. She boarded the plane, And sank in her seat, Then she sought her book, Which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, She gasped with surprise, There was her bag of cookies, In front of her eyes. If mine are here, She moaned in despair, The others were his, And he tried to share. Too late to apologize, She realized with grief, That she was the rude one, The ingrate, the thief! How many times have we absolutely known that something was a certain way, only to discover later that what we believed to be true...was not? "Always, Keep An Open Mind And An Open Heart, Because You Just Never Know..." (((HUGS)))

:lol: Hehe, yes it happens to all of us at one point in time. Wonder if the nervous laugh meant that he knew she thought they were hers.... ;)

Seems the older we get, the more we need to be reminded of the little things.

Great reminder. Thanks Coyote for sharing that with us. Iam wondering how she treats her HUSBAND if she treats total strangers with such disrespect/nonchalant interest?? ;) Prehaps her Harliquin Romance novels need to take a Back Seat. getsteppin

Excellent story! Sometimes we just need to be humbled so that we may see clearly again.
