Daily Prompt: Is there a person you should’ve thanked, but never had the chance? Is there someone who helped you along the way without even realizing it? Here’s your chance to express your belated gratitude.
When I was about eight, my Grandad asked me to play my trumpet in the band he’s in as a one off. So I did and it was surprisingly fun! Anyway, at the break one of my Grandad’s friends bought me a scone with jam and cream (it was at a summer fête) completely out of the blue. I didn’t know what to say. I was a very shy child and really found it difficult to talk to people I didn’t know, so I sort of just took the plate, gave him an awkward smile and just stood next to him eating it. I cringe at the thought of it now, although I don’t think the man thought anything of it. So that’s who I’d thank – the man with the scone!
