We walked passed a familiar "big issue" seller and he gave his usual, cheeky coffee order: "I'll have a coffee with milk and sugar, pal"
Well, boy was he suprised when he got one! I am fasting from coffee/ fizzy juice just now for Lent - why? because it means something to me to give it up.
Instead of getting my usual (see pic)grande gingerbread latte with Fairtrade beans & skinny milk...I got a tall tea. I put the remaining money towards a tall Americano for the chap.
He was shocked... He kept saying "God bless" as I walked away. Hopefully my kindness will give him some warmth... physically and, maybe, emotionally.
Let's start a campaign - buy a bum a beverage - and let's start to think different.
