Today (Dec. 23, 2010) I walked over to talk with Quinton R. while he was waiting at the bus stop. So far he seemed to be the shyest of those I’ve met during this adventure. Quinton thought it was just amazing that Reed had given $10 to a stranger everyday for a year and was even more amazed that it was being carried on by others.
I noticed his suitcase sitting near the bench so asked if he was going somewhere for the holidays. He had no plans of going anywhere for the holidays as his family lived in the area. He had the suitcase because he had just picked up some clothes that were given to him and the suitcase was the easiest way to transport them back home.
When asked what he thought he would do with the $10 Quinton said he had been eating hotdogs daily lately because it was all he could afford so the money was going to go toward a meal other than hotdogs.
