Loving Men-Seasons


The seasons are changing in Charlotte.

The days are getting shorter, which means the nights are getting longer.

I’m in a car driving to meet friends for dinner. One, Veronica is a bartender at my favorite watering hole. The other, Mark is a server at a swanky chop house in Charlotte.

Whenever I dine I can never eat all the food presented to me, so I always inquire if the restaurant has a “homeless program.” Often the answer is yes. Then I tell my server to please present my dinner to them.

I hate wasting food.

If everyone ate half of everything they’re presented in a restaurant, we could feed twice as many people.

The next time you dine out, please think of others less fortunate. Share your meal with those cold and hungry. Rather than full be satisfied: both in stomach and in spirit.
