“Tell us about the time when you performed a secret random act of kindness — where the recipient of your kindness never found out about your good deed. How did the deed go down?” -The Daily Post
It’s late and I’m sleepy so I’m going to write about an example from today since it’s the first thing that comes to mind.
I was in Brookstone looking at the BoogieBoards. If you aren’t familiar with what they are, BoogieBoards are e-ink tablets that you can doodle on and completely reset thousands of times for endless notes and drawings. I wrote “Happy Holidays! PS: Please buy me!” on one and walked to the other side of the store to watch it from afar. I peered between displays to see how someone would react to my little joyful message left on the digital canvas. Instead of getting any reaction, I got to watch a man and woman look at it for two seconds, click the “clear” button, and walk away. A clean slate and no sign of my holiday message ever being written. I guess that’s the beauty of the BoogieBoard. So much for making someone smile.
