Sub Perspective

This afternoon I ran into Turco's Italian Deli to pick up some sandwiches for a lunch meeting at the Day Nursery. The owner asked who the sandwiches were for and I told him they were for the executive director and my co-president of an organization I volunteer for.
He said, "Oh you mean the PTO at the school?" I suddenly realized I had ordered food from him for a staff appreciation event earlier in the year.
"No," I said "This is for something different although I do volunteer at the school."
"Oh so this has to do with your kid's soccer team then?" He asked
" I do volunteer for Strikers, too, but this lunch is for people at the Day Nursery."
He paused and said, "Pardon me for asking, but do you get paid for ANY of the work you do?"
I laughed and took my sandwiches, but have a new found respect for the Turco's sandwich guy. I am also glad his sandwiches are cheap.
Oh...and for those of you who expressed concern that we had been away from the family table for the past several days; we are back on track.
We had Psychic Chicken Noodle Soup, Wheat Rolls, and Gruyere cheese. The soup was your normal homemade chicken noodle, but psychic because Leif, who was fine before dinner, went straight to bed shortly after with chills and a sore throat. Poor Guy.
