A few weeks ago this summer, I had an hour to kill and decided to drive down to the boardwalk. Although it started raining on the drive down, I still had a nice time walking around and enjoying this late-afternoon adventure. A Dunkin Donuts butter pecan iced coffee added to the enjoyment.
I went into a shop to buy a hoody (although it sounds ridiculous, I had straightened my hair earlier and didn’t want the rain to make it all wavy again), but sadly realized I didn’t have enough on me to buy it. The workers did, however, give me some free inspirational magnets!
After wandering around a bit more I decided it was time to head out. I was thinking a bit about my bucket list and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to cross off “feed someone’s parking meter that is about to expire” from my “Kind Acts & Volunteering” bucket list.
As I walked toward my car, I noticed someone’s meter had reached zero, but that their car was still there. I only had a couple of quarters, but put in enough to give them an extra half hour/forty minutes or so.
When I reached my car, I laughed because I had actually run out of time too, but luckily there were no tickets!
So has anyone done something similar or plan on crossing this one of his or her bucket list? I’d love to hear from you all!
