A very eloquent recital of a "sliding-doors" moment. I like it!
A gentlemanly act, I must say. Our Reg would have said: "Use the paper yourself - let her get wet."
A lovely slice of a moment in time. A kind and generous moment, at that!
so sweet. moments like this will be treasured forever.
Oh that crosss word is finished, you just don't know it
Nice little story, artful and deft.
I hope she didn't end up with black ink running down her face!
Thank you for this, brings back memories of riding trams and finding generous people, on the trip, you always remember but never met again.
