pinky promise

i pinky promised with a homeless man on friday.

there's a homeless man i pass nearly every day during the lunch hour on my way to barnes and noble.  he has his cup out and shakes it as people pass by.  after 3 months of avoidance, denial and emotional paralysis, i finally did something on friday.  i decided to give him some money.  

i made him pinky promise that he wouldn't use it on drugs or alcohol.  

then i found out his name is william.  the same name as my husband.
