    What was your good action today? If not today, then yesterday?

    I went to the supermarket. As I was standing in the line at the casher, I heard her saying to another employee: "Such a hot weather (we are in the summer here) and I have this sore throat."

    When my turn came to pay, I told her: "Ginger is good for that."

    "Is it?"

    "I have got some at home. Shall I bring it to you?"

    She smiled at me as if she couldn't believe me.

    I went home and came back to her with salted dried ginger in crystals.

    She was amazed as I handed her the small box and said:

    "It is very salty. Keep it in your mouth until it sorts of dissolves."

    "Let me try."

    "Do you want to keep the box?"

    "No, I just need two or three. Thanks so much." And she gave me the most beautiful smile I had for the whole day, even though she was not particularly beautiful.

    I notice that you are in Brazil. That was a nice thing that you did. Here in Florida with the clerk would have been suspicious as to what the crystals actually were. She may have even made you consume so first then try it herself. Maybe people are more trusting in Brazil.
