An occasional look at times when I do something that surprises me.

I was in the supermarket the other day, just browsing for some things for the cupboard, when I saw an elderly woman trying to reach for goods from the top shelf. She was tantalizingly close, but not quite there…

So I reached up and got the jar of stuff for her.

This was not the random act of kindness.

This was: As I handed her the jar, she let out an almighty fart, and was so embarrassed that I thought she was going to faint. She apologised to me,  and I made motions like I was deaf, smiled and walked on.

Now, normally I would have laughed out loud and said something smart at her discomfort, but I guess it was a good karma day.

My wife says I am growing up, but that can’t be it…
