“I randomly got a text wishing me well and asking me if I’ve ‘been good enough for cookies.’ I played into it and said that I was always good for cookies and expressed how I wanted some. I then sent a text saying I was just joking and playing along because I thought that it was adorable. She then asked me to send over my address and what kind of cookies I wanted.
She then asked me to send over my address and what kind of cookies I wanted. I didn’t take her too seriously so I sent my address and shrugged it off.
A few days later, I was having a pretty crappy day when I got a hold of a package of freshly baked cookies. Talk about a surprise. I messaged Gammy expressing my thanks and how amazing it was.
Somewhere along the way, Gammy got confused and thought I either knew her grandson or could get into contact with him…she wasn’t 100% wrong. Once I realized she wanted her grandson to have some as well, I asked for his number and reached out. Turns out he works at the Ingles grocery store on the way to my house that I go to pretty often. I called him and explained what happened and we laughed about it. I led with a ‘You’re not going to believe this and it’s a really weird story but hear me out.’ His response led with ‘Yeah, that is extremely weird.’
It was funny and I could tell he was confused and feeling a bit awkward. I met up with him that evening and gave him what was left of the cookies. (I had eaten about half of them because they were delicious!) I wanted to ask for a picture of us eating the cookies but could tell he felt really awkward and weird about it at his work. I just reveled in the experience. I messaged Gammy and told her I delivered the cookies and asked for her address again because I lost hers. She was extremely cute with her responses and grateful that I dropped off some cookies. To think, she told me I was thoughtful! After sending me cookies!
We are so disconnected with our texts and social media, so I can’t wait to send Gammy some handwritten letters to express my gratitude. I’ll definitely be writing her in the upcoming week and hopefully get a steady correspondence. ”
