There's a "Noodles & Co" restaurant two doors from us (I think I've enjoyed maybe five meals there since they opened four years ago), so I signed up for a free birthday meal... and on a lark entered their "March Madness" contest. Hey, you never know.
Except that I haven't won anything (at all) since I was a sophomore in high school, many decades ago.
So when I ever got an email telling me that I was one of the 255 winners of a "Mac 'n Cheese bar for 20" I was very, very excited. Even though I am not really that into pasta. (When I lived in Italy, it caused the sisters no end of consternation when I would skip the pasta altogether.) But free is free. And free food is always good to share.
That was yesterday, when I was at a workshop all day and most virtuously did not look at my phone from 9 to 4. When I finally got home, I was bursting to tell the first sister I encountered. It was Sr Helena. Seeing me in happy dance mode, she commented, "This is about food, isn't it?"
Yep. And free food is always good to share!
