I was having a lovely dinner with my mother when all of a sudden there was a knock at the door. Now you have to understand that in our neighborhood, no one EVER comes to the door. Ever... Especially not at night. We don't even get the occasional Jehovah's Witness. In other words, no one should've been at our door at 5pm, because we don't have people that we know that just drop by. (I make it sound like we are in a dangerous neighborhood, but we aren't.. lol)
So my mom asks, 'Who is it?' and the guy states his name. Next thing I know this guy is saying 'Hi, I'm with (insert whatever the organization is) and we are having a contest where we are trying to see who can meet the most friendly and non-threatening people first.' I just had to fall out laughing!! For real? Who really says they are trying to meet friendly and non-threatening people? Anyway, so my mother asks 'What do we have to do so that you can prove that you've met all these people?' Of course he was selling something and of course we didn't buy anything.
It's surprising to me how people still go door to door trying to sell items. I'm not the one.. Knocking on peoples door all day everyday is for the birds. This young man was very brave and this funny little meeting really kinda made my day. I love funny moments like this. Until the next great happenstance..
