Give Me A Break! (Kit Kat and Toblerone)
Recently, my step-Mom was in the hospital. When I arrived there with my Dad to visit her, I looked around for a wheelchair for him.
(It's a large hospital and I knew it would be quite a walk to her room.)
A young man was walking out the door just as we arrived and when he saw me looking around...he came back into the building and asked if we needed any help. When he saw my Dad and I told him of our need, he straightaway went around the corner and brought to us the most beautiful brand new wheelchair for my Dad! Daddy was really moved by this kind gesture.
I knew I didn't have any cash on me...but I very much wanted to give him something! I looked into my bag, and there was a small Kit Kat bar that I had been saving, the very last one that I had brought back from England! I reached into my purse and said, "Oh, this is just a little thing, but it is a Kit Kat bar that I bought when I was in England. Here, I hope you like it!"
He smiled and took the Kit-Kat!
Hey, it was only a small chocolate bar but it was ENGLISH chocolate and the chocolate from there is very, very good. Honest!
Here's the rest of the story... when we were in my step-mom's hospital room later, the same man came into her room ...and he was her nurse! It is a small world, isn't it?
Oh! And I forgot to say, a few days later, Richard surprised me by telling me that he had found an English Kit Kat bar in our kitchen!
(I must have put it down by the microwave and forgotten about it and it somehow got pushed to the side.) So, it was really the penultimate Kit Kat bar that the male nurse received as a thank you!
P.S. I always make sure I bring back custard creams and Mars bars from England, they are my favorites!
