Mackie's fries and sauce . . . and other random acts of kindness


Today's Writing Prompt: Love or Be Loved

Would you rather have a significant other who was too clingy and needy, or one who was too cold and distant? (Obviously both are pretty awful, but if you had to pick one....).

I would definitely prefer the colder other.  Sad to say I have a huge lack of empathy for people that are too clingy.  They get on my nerves.

Random Acts of Kindness Day

When : Always February 17th

Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day. And, you know what to do...perform a few random acts of kindness. Almost any kind deed will do. And, we highly recommend you perform kind acts on as many people as you can.

This is a favorite day of many people and groups. People like the idea of showing a little kindness to others. Its a fun and good thing to do. And, they like being on the receiving end of this day as well. It makes both the giver and the receiver feel good.

Schools have used this day as an educational event, and to promote the value of kindness. Organizations have used this day to promote their cause, and for fundraisers.

Caution: What comes around, goes around. Random Acts of Kindness is highly contagious.
