Yesterday at around 6:45pm during the downpour near the EEOB, the kindest man swooped in and, upon seeing me soaking wet, walked me to the bus stop a few blocks away with his umbrella. It was such a nice gestured in and of itself, but it came on the heels of a day where I needed extra reminder of all the goodness in the world. I thanked him but I can’t imagine that he knows what it meant to me and how much I appreciated it. So, to the White House switch board operator: thank you for being such a spectacularly kind and thoughtful human, please know that I will pay it forward.
