Friday the 28th of April was a semi formal dance that my boyfriend and I attended. I had a friend of mine Jenna come to my house and do my hair and make up beforehand. She did an awesome job and I loved what she did for me. I wore a new fustia dress from Macy’s that was perfect. My parents and I went to his place to pick him up, before we left he gave me a beautiful corsage and we took lots of pictures. Mike and I went out for dinner before the dance, we went to Hullar’s located in Fayetteville. We had a wonderful meal and great conversation. We asked for our tab but when we did we were informed by our waitress that another customer saw us dressed up and ready to go out, that he had picked up our bill and paid it forward. We were definitely surprised and we expressed our gratitude. The next day I wrote a letter to the editor and unknown to me so Mike’s parents. Emily Derrenbacher saw it on Syracuse Post Standard and tagged on me on Facebook, seeing that we did that. Today I read it in the newspaper. Early this morning, Congressman John Katko texted me and said he loved my letter to the editor and I rock. It was definitely a kick start to a great day. I will pay it forward for sure!
