On our recent airplane trip, I walked Brady up to the First Class Area lavatory (can't call it a bathroom when it's in First Class, LOL!). While he was in there, I chatted with a very nice young male flight attendant.
When Brady came out, the guy said real conspiratorially, "Can you keep a secret?" And then he handed Brady one of the special First Class Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies which we had smelled in the air just a few minutes before.
"Oh no!" I said. "That's so nice but he's allergic to eggs!"
Brady and I both thanked him and told him how nice we thought that was. Then Brady, my inventor, added, "And don't worry. When I grow up I'm going to invent an allergy-go-away-inator."
The guy seemed surprised by this statement and said, "Wow. That sounds like a good idea!"
I'm happy both about a random kindness from a stranger and for Brady's upbeat attitude :)
