Today’s random act of kindness confused my co-conspirator. I decided to purchase a coffee card, and after some difficulty with the cash register, the woman at the counter handed me the loaded card. Then I handed it back to her and asked her if she would give it to a friendly looking patron at some point later. She didn’t get it at first and suggested I put it in an envelope as a gift for my friend. When I reiterated what I was hoping she would do for me her eyes lit up and she smiled with understanding. She was happy to do it. I imagine whoever she gave the card to would have been equally confused by her gesture.
