Unexpected Generosity

I have never liked coleslaw.  Ever.  I don’t like raw cabbage.  I don’t like mayonnaise.  And, nothing about putting the two of those things together sounds even remotely tasty.  At my house when we eat our favorite foods we say they are full of delishiosicalitaciousness.  You will never hear me say coleslaw and delishiosicalitaciousness in the same sentence.  I feel the same way about Peeps.  I know some of you love this springtime treat, but I don’t.  Never have.  Just because you put a marshmallow in the shape of a cute bunny or chick, does not give it delishiosicalitacioiusness.  So, why did I just buy 12 packages of pink and yellow Peeps at K-Mart right after Easter then?

Good question.  I actually spent my hard-earned money on Peeps and you can readily find them in my pantry right now…as I type.  But, they’re not for me…they’re for my nieces.  These two girls love to come over and hang out in Joe Village, which is also known as our backyard.  Doesn’t everyone name their backyard?  We do.  Even though we don’t have anyone named Joe in our entire family. 

Their favorite thing to do in Joe Village is to find the ingredients to make s’mores.  I say ingredients because I can’t really cook.  So, I’ve convinced them that since s’mores require “ingredients”, that making them over a campfire qualifies as cooking! J  And, what’s more fun than roasting a little pink Peep over the open fire.  Nothing, I tell you…absolutely nothing!

So, yes, some combinations are disgusting…cabbage and mayonnaise.  Yuck!  And some combinations are awesome…Peeps and a campfire.  Yum!  But, no combo is as good as the one Kid President taught me about a few weeks ago.  Have you heard about kid president yet?  He’s super-fantastic.  You just have to check him out on YouTube.  But, most recently he was talking about the combo of Unexpected Generosity.  You have to watch it.  I don’t know that there’s anything cooler, or more fun to do, than to surprise someone with Unexpected Generosity.  It comes in all shapes and sizes, but this is definitely a combo you want to supersize.  Watch it now…Unexpected Generosity:  Man on the Street!
