It’s not all that often that I get to talk about Andrew these days, and especially not outside of explaining to people that he is actually in heaven and no longer with us. Well, a sweet lady at CVS gave me the opportunity a week or so ago. (For the record, I officially love CVS – if you want to learn how to play the “drug store game” and get lots of household items for dirt cheap, click here or here).
As I was checking out in her line, she made a comment about the ring that I had on my right finger. It went something like this.
Cashier: “August birthday?”
Me: “No, my birthday isn’t in August, but my son’s is.”
Cashier: “Peridot, right?”
Me: “Yes, good memory.”
Just a short little dialogue about my ring did my heart good that day. And I was thoroughly impressed that she recognized Peridot as the August birthstone. 🙂
