To the man

*who called out to me in a grocery store noticing my little one chewing on a can and gently told me its poisonous for babies
Thank you for taking the time to tell a stranger that her baby is chewing something that could be poisonous

*who never stayed in touch inspite of living in the same community and yet knocked on my doors to ask for a drop off at the airport, well, I am no Mother Teresa
