Just when you’ve gotten tired of the commercialization of Christmas, and of all the wars on Christmas and the Christians celebrating it by the Limp-wristed Lickspittle Left, etc, etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseam – along comes this story of a random shopper’s generosity towards a Marine.
A Marine who’s planning to marry a Texan got an early Christmas present: A fellow shopper picked up the tab for a $3,000 diamond engagement ring after the two struck up a conversation in a jewelry store.
The 54-year-old Dallas woman who paid for the 1-carat, princess cut diamond ring wants to remain anonymous, Helzberg Diamonds spokeswoman Stacey McBride told The Associated Press on Friday.
The woman’s father was in the military, her brother was a Marine who died in Vietnam and her nephew just got back from Iraq, McBride said.
Now that’s what I call supporting the troops.
And to that wonderful lady: Standing you to a beer may be a bit déclassé – but I’ll happily treat you to a Starbucks anytime you’d like.
And both the Denizens and the LCs would be willing to do likewise, I’d think.
Merry Christmas, guyz.
