yikes ; running a bit late, today!
so, we live a few blocks away from a library. we are there quite a bit & its one of my favorite spots in the neighborhood.
when i was asking around for 'kindness' ideas, a few people suggested i take some money & pay off a random persons fine at the library. awesome idea.
so tonight, we walked to the library & i told them about the project and gave them a $5 to put towards someones fine. BOTH librarians told me that it was too much of a hassle & they werent interested in doing it. they said they are too busy [i get it] and this would be one more thing they would have to deal with.
in my mind, they would have put the $5 at the register with a note that said 'use this first for fines' ; but i guess not..
fine. plan b.
well, there is an ice cream [with sorbet!] shop a block away, so we headed there instead. we bought a cup of mango sorbet [so good!] and then gave $5 to be used on a random stranger later tonight.
both girls at the counter were super pumped & thought it was a great idea.
