Best of Blog: The Slushie Fund

October 7, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Best Of Blog, Peace for Children

The nearby strip plaza, where I buy the coffee cream I all too often run out of, is “L”-shaped and has a variety store at each end. On a cream-replenishing mission the other day, I parked my car in front of the store I choose to patronize, just because I really like the Korean family who operates it. I first gathered up the mail I had in the car and walked to the corner of the plaza to deposit it into the mailbox there.

Walking towards me were two boys, about ten or eleven years old. They were debating which of the stores made the better Slushie. I interjected, “this one, for sure“, pointing to where I was going to buy my cream.

How do you know?” was the comeback of the boy with the long, wavy blonde hair and crooked teeth.

Because I get them there all the time“, I fibbed, knowing there was some unknown reason why I would try to persuade them to accompany me.

They followed me into the store and I hurried to the dairy section only to return to the counter and discover the boys didn’t have enough change in their Slushie fund to buy their icy-sweet reward. I believe the kind-hearted owner was about to tell the disappointed youngsters that they could in fact fill their cups but before she could say anything, I instructed her to “let me buy two Slushies for these fine young gentlemen.” She smiled widely as I began to understand why I directed them to the ‘best Slushie store.’

Wow, mister, thank you!” I heard one of them say.

I turned and replied, “Have you guys ever heard of “Pay It Forward?”

Both shook their head side to side.

I continued, as they eagerly began filling their tall cups with the highly colored syrupy slush, “Pay It Forward means when someone does a kind act to you, instead of paying them back you do a kind act for someone else, and then they do the same and on and on it goes.”

Wow, that’s cool!” the blonde exclaimed.

It sure is “, I replied, “and can you imagine the kind of world this would be if everyone did that?”

Both sets of lips were now firmly wrapped around the straws as their eyes widened, heads bobbing up and down which I took for a resounding yes.

As we exited the store together they thanked me again and started walking away. I watched them wondering what they were so exuberantly chatting about. When they were a fair distance away I hollered, “What are you guys supposed to remember?”

They both looked back, and the other boy raised his arm, giving me the thumbs up, and in unison, they shouted, “Pay It Forward!” That’s what they were talking about!

Somewhere in the back of my mind I knew that two young men would be trying to pay it forward to someone very soon. Hopefully, it will become a lifelong habit!
