Groceries

She showed me an old check made out to her for $12.88. “Can you cash this for me? I need groceries.” I looked at the ragged check and handed her a twenty. “Pay me back when you cash that check.” I was darn sure I’d never see that twenty again, more the fool I, but a few weeks later she saw me. “I have your twenty!” I was surprised. I thanked her and turned to go but something occurred to me that had not before. I handed the twenty back to her. “Keep it for groceries. Peace be with you.”
