La Madeleine

Day 272
The selection of pastries at La Madeleine in Alexandria, Virginia makes me happy that I never diet on vacation.

“Would you like to donate a dollar to fight children’s hunger?” the clerk asks as I check out. 

“Sure,” I nod.  How can I so no to one dollar when I’m getting ready to dig into a delicious quiche? 

“You get a cookie with your donation,” she tells me after I agree to the donation. 

“Can you give the cookie to the next person in line?”  I may not be dieting but there’s no reason to be reckless.
