Entry: Soup Kitchen 12/5 Dec 6, 2017

12/5/17- Today after I was done serving and moved to wash off the tables and chairs in the dining room, a stocky, taller man confronted me to ask me about finals. He launched into a story about typewriters and how easy school work is now that things are digital. The man talked for awhile, but at the end of his breath thanked me from the bottom of his heart for taking time out of my day to come serve, especially before I leave for the holiday. I was knuckle deep in bleach-water cleaning plastic wrap table clothes, however I heard the man and what he said had a monumental impact. Reflecting on the experience, my response to the man, “It’s my pleasure,” couldn’t ring more true. This semester at the soup kitchen has really been a pleasure.
