When the family caught up with me, I told Kak and Jake what the clerk had said. It had been a long drive, it was late, they were tired... but all of a sudden Kathryn let out a whoop and the two of them went scrambling into the hotel shop to grab some candy. For just a moment, my 19 and 22-year-old were 6 and 9 again - excited for treats. 😀 It brought back memories of being a daddy at a different stage.
I noticed in my email today that 500 pts had also been added to my account. I think the clerk appreciated their enthusiasm and genuine thank-yous.
