Apple of my eye

You work in the produce section. I was having a terrible day and you took me around the store with a paring knife and let me sample all the apples. It made a terrible day so much better.

Another day I asked you for advice about making an apple pie — I explained that I have celiac disease and am a poor student, so if I was going to indulge in this pie endeavour, it had to be perfect. You gave me some great tips and encouragement, and told me that you also ate gluten free. I had planned on just eating the pie myself, but after meeting you, I wanted to share. I was too afraid ask, convinced you would think I was crazy... so I just didn't bake the pie at all.

Since then, I've taken to looking for you every time I do my groceries. Most days you're there. You have the most lovely and genuine smile. I wonder if you recognize me. If you do, please say hello. I would love to bake you a pie. —Shy apple-loving shopper
