Secret Santa

December 4th, 2010

Today at Borders I witnessed something super cool. I was working the register, as per usual, and had just started to ring up a customer when suddenly a woman in a red coat and a little boy in a Santa hat popped up at his shoulder. (I swear they came out of nowhere).

We’re doing Secret Santa today. We’d like to pay for the first $50 of your purchase.”

I’m serious.

The lady whipped out an envelope of cash, paid for the bewildered man’s books, and zipped back out the door.

And that, my friends, is what the holiday season could be all about. Goodwill to men (and women), indeed.
