It's a small world

Michelle was gone the weekend of the 11th. She went to Cedar Point with a friend and the friend's mom and brother. From all reports, they had a great time. On the way home Michelle called me and asked if I'd meet them at a park and ride lot off the Thruway so they didn't have to drive so far. I agreed. When I pulled in Michelle was gathering her stuff when I hear...YEP! I knew I knew her!

I looked at who was speaking and she looked familiar. I kept trying to think if I knew her or of it was because she looked a bit like one of my cousin's grown children. Then she said the magic words...I think I took care of your daughter before. AHA! I knew who she was. She was "A", Carrie's main nurse when she was in ICU for 3 weeks with meningitis! Carrie just happened to tag along for the ride so she got to see her. She was amazed at how grown up she's gotten.

Seems A was looking through the photos on my camera (yes, I let Michelle take my camera!) and thought she recognized my face. Now I know Michelle wasn't lying when she said she had fun...the woman is a riot to talk to! As we were putting Michelle's stuff in my trunk, Michelle's friend was pulling something out of a cooler and throwing them in the trunk. A said...I picked these up for your family. I knew you probably could use them. It was stack of white hotel towels! OMGoodness!!! On the way home I said to Michelle...they'll charge her credit card for those. Michelle said no, she pulled them from the cleaning lady's cart.

So now I have hot towels hanging in my bathroom.

That's really sweet that she thought of you, but who STEALS something and then GIFTS it to someone else, while admitting said gift was stolen?!?!?!
