Yesterday was my birthday. My dad drove down from New Hampshire, and we had lunch at a local pizzeria. The owner is a friend of mine, and he overheard my dad mention my birthday. We had already paid for our sandwiches, but he insisted, "Come back tomorrow. Lunch will be on me!"
I'm not crazy about accepting favors. But sometimes, friendship is about letting someone do something nice. So today, I got a free lunch.
