I am not much of a drinker, and even at family events I usually pass up the table offerings. However, I always share some of the wine that we bring with sandwiches to the Wednesday concerts in the park. And, although it was less than a quarter of a glass I was sipping, it evidently affected my equilibrium when I stood up.
A young gentleman who fortunately was sitting or standing nearby not only helped to steady me, but continued to support me while helping my partner escort me all the way back to our car, while the concert was still going on.
I think that such an extraordinary measure of caring for a lady needs to be made public, to counter all the distasteful reports of male behavior we have been made aware of lately.
My partner and I certainly do wish we knew how to personally thank this gentleman. Maybe he will read this and know how much his action was appreciated.
