“Dear Popville,

I had a missed connection this afternoon at the CVS at 14th and W NW. A neighbor in need asked me if I could lend her some money to get somewhere warm today. She needed $75, and I told her I could get her half way there.

When I went inside to the ATM a tall man with brown eyes, probably in his late 30’s, approached me and asked if he could help.

He gave me $40 to contribute and said he saw me talking to her and wanted to help her at least get a warm meal because she seemed so distressed. He was carrying a Sweetgreen bag.

I was struck by how he went out of his way to help out, and he looked pretty handsome from what I could see under his mask. I’d like to talk to him if is available and happens to see this.

I was the gal with glasses in a navy coat fumbling around at the ATM.”
