I ran into one of my neighbors daughters earlier today. Well … I didn’t actually run into her, but you know what I mean. LOL
My husband and I had just come back from shopping and as she was walking down the street towards her car she stopped to say hello to us.
She’s the lady I have called in past posts – “The Pentasa Fairy”. Why? Well she works in a medical building and when she found out I was taking Pentasa for my Crohn’s (it’s an anti-inflammatory type medicine) she went around to several of the gastrointestinal specialists in her building and collected sample boxes of Pentassa for me. Between December and March she dropped off meds at my house twice and all in all she gave me enough that I went about 5 months without having to pay for this expensive medication. Pretty cool since we don’t have a drug plan. I figure she saved me about $800.
She’d just drop it off in a bag outside our door … she’d never knock she’d just leave the meds and go … We started saying oh wow the Pentasa Fairy’s been here when we’d find a bag full of Pentasa samples outside the door.
One of the first things she asked me today when we were talking was if I had enough Pentasa and when I said I’d run out of her “gift” she said she’d ask her doctors if they had any more. It would be sweet if she could get more because it really helps us out.
It sounds like she makes a habit of getting drug samples from the doctors in her medical building. She gets everything from blood pressure meds to medicines that treat acne for people she knows.
Many of our neighbors are Greek – not odd since we live in a fairly Greek neighborhood. While my husband and I were talking with our neighbors daughter she told us that they always refer to my husband as Saint Christo in part because he’s so nice is always doing nice things for the people in our neighborhood and also because his name means “Christ” in Greek.
She then asked me if my full name was Patricia and yep – it is. Then she told me that my name in Greek sometimes means Virgin Mary. LOL So Chris and I are Christ and the Virgin Mary. No wonder the neighbors were so happy when we moved in!
Do you do nice things for your neighbors or have one or two in your area that do very nice things for you? I love my neighborhood it’s just full of nice people like my neighbors daughter.
