Yesterday, I wanted a cupcake from this gourmet shop in the Ferry Building in San Francisco. But I am trying to cut out sweets, so I bought two: With the intent of giving them away.
I asked a mom and her young son if they'd like one of the cupcakes, each wrapped in its own box, and she said no. I think she was afraid it was poisonous or something. (Stranger danger!)
Then I found a teenaged couple waiting to cross the street and asked if they wanted to share a cupcake. They looked at me really strangely until I assured them it was new and wrapped and vanilla with vanilla frosting and sprinkles, and they reluctantly took it. It wasn't until I was all the way across the street that the girl yelled, "THANK YOU, THIS IS SO SWEET!"
I have a second chocolate one to give away, too. I'll find someone today.
However, my "official" gift given today is $1.50 to a man who asked me for bus fare.
I am enjoying this project quite a lot.
