An Act of Generosity

BR 100 word contest


I'm staring at a vending machine, wondering whether I should buy those Lays potato chips or not. This man holding filled plastic bags comes by me. He takes out a can of corned beef, opens it, pours corned beef on a folded sheet of paper towel, and cooks it in the microwave for 2 minutes. He sees me looking at the vending machine, holds a can of corned beef in front of me, and asks, "want some of my corned beef?" I say, "no, but maybe you can donate it to a homeless shelter." He says, "well, I'm homeless."
