I live in a very unique place. When the temperatures turn warm, the activity level in my town heats up. People flock in to enjoy the boardwalk and the beach.
But as soon as the first cool breeze blows, the majority of the people pack up and flee. My vibrant community turns empty and desolate with only a few brave souls like us battling the winter at the beach.
What would you do?
Come on… be honest, please….
It was the middle of the winter, the beginning of January to be exact. It was an unseasonably warm day, a perfect time to stroll the boardwalk.
You are in the kitchen with your wife. It is now seven o’clock. All the other houses you can see from your window are dark. No one appears to be home. Your wife is stirring a pot of tomato sauce on the stove. You are about to pour a glass of wine for both of you when there is a knock on the door.
You put down the wine bottle, confused. You weren’t expecting anyone. There is a woman in front of you. She appears to be in her late sixties. You don’t recognize her. A man, about the same age, is standing at the edge of your driveway. You open the door.
She tells you her and her husband went for a walk on the boardwalk and she had a bathroom emergency. She said your home was the first one she saw with lights on. She asked if she could come in and use your bathroom.
What do you do?
And yes… this really happened….
we let her in…
