I met a lot of peanut people.

But today, I am thankful for this peanut woman.

“It’s okay. It happens.”

This peanut woman reminded me how normal it is to be a human who make mistakes. She was so patient knowing that I am just a two-month old corporate baby.

This peanut woman also made me realized that I will not always encounter peanut people like her and that sometimes, we are kucky enough to meet one.

I wonder what she is like as a grandmother as she mentioned that she has two grandkids. I wonder if they enjoy eating peanut together as she enjoys eating peanuts all by herself, or do they even eat peanuts for fun?

I wonder…

How often does she buy peanuts for other people. Does it happen often or am i one of the lucky ones?

I wonder what could have been if i did not make any mistakes in front of her.

I wonder what could have been if I talked more and opened up myself like a peanut being cracked open to be enjoyed by a peanut woman.
