Josh said no, that the man didn't have to do that , but the man insisted. So Josh got the cheapest item on the menu, 1 scoop of ice cream. But the smile on that mans face was priceless. Between the two of them they sure made me feel all warm inside.
The perfect time to teach Josh about paying it forward. (RAK) The next time you two are out and stop to eat and you see an elderly person, offer to pay for their purchase. Just don't let them know who did it. Then let Josh see the face of that elderly person and the happiness it brought.

bt, one of the questions that they ask the star on Actor's Studio is "What is your favorite sound?" I am always hoping just one of them will say, "The sound of a baby or child laughing." To me it is the best sound in the world.
