You Know This Is Killing Me, Right?

For the second time in three days, I must again report on something good that Hick has done! I'm pretty sure he's trying to kill me, this time by being good to other people so that I have nothing to write about except his positives. The nerve of that guy!

I think I mentioned once before that Hick has a certain regular at his Storage Unit Store. She has a daughter with Down's Syndrome who LOVES Wonder Woman. Hick himself is a fan of Wonder Woman, the slot machine. Any time he sees Wonder Woman items during his Goodwill tours, or auctioning, he buys them for the lady's daughter. He gives them to her when they come in to shop. He doesn't charge for Wonder Woman.

Yesterday Hick was at Goodwill over in Bill-Paying Town. He found a Wonder Woman doll for $12. While he was paying, the man in line behind him asked if he liked Wonder Woman. Hick explained who it was for, and the guy said, "I always love to help out those kids. Here. Let me pay half." And he did!

Yes, Hick is a good guy. I guess Even Steven could feel the goodness oozing out of Hick's pores, and made sure that Hick's charitable deed was done for half price.

Hick won't know until the weekend (weather permitting) how much that gal likes her Wonder Woman doll.

The guy behind Hick at Goodwill certainly deserves an Even-Stevening. He paid for half a doll, without being officially recognized for it. That's like not getting credit for a Big Salad.

    1. Yes, but I can't reveal too much of his good side, or his unofficial fan club would grow exponentially.

  2. Hick is a good hearted softie. Maybe I'll call him Mr. Softie.

    1. That reminds me of the ice cream truck that used to drive through our neighborhood. I had a little plastic ring that was an ice cream cone. Hick needs his own plastic ring!

    1. Yes, they can't let that info out, because then we wouldn't be divided.

    1. Yes, there's that. But maybe we are like Wang Lung and O-lan in "The Good Earth," warding off bad luck or evil spirits by downplaying their good-ness...

  6. Hick gets a gold star for this and that man who paid half can have one too. What a wonderful thing to do for that girl :)

    1. Especially the half-man, who won't even get to see how happy the doll makes the girl and her mom! But Hick, too, for actively shopping for Wonder Woman with that girl in mind.
