I was in TJ Max looking for a gift box. It had to be pretty and/or useful and at least 18 inches long.

Guessing sizes is not my strong point so I stopped a mother/daughter combo and asked, “Do you think this is 18 inches?” Daughter happened to be an off-duty TJ Max employee and knew where to find a tape measure. My intended purchase was only 15 inches but the ladies were perfect “hug” victims.

Then, I realized that two aisles further along and many moons ago, I had hugged my first stranger I recounted my story and got more hugs without even asking. I believe TJ Max will remain a favorite store!
