life list: treat a stranger to a meal.

Sometimes I have moments where I have the urge to help a person without them expecting or knowing about it. The other day I walked into an Thai restaurant during my lunch hour and placed a to-go order.  While I was waiting for my food, I sat and observed the people that were enjoying their meals. Business people, students, couples. I saw one elderly man eating alone and a thought popped into my head. How surprised would that man be if I told the cashier I would pay for his meal.  Walk out of the restaurant without him ever realizing it was me. How delighted would you be if asked for the bill, only to be told that a friendly stranger had already taken care of your lunch?

So I'm officially placing this on my life list. Random act of kindness in the form of a lunch. Have you ever thought of doing something like this?
