Secondhand Sunday

I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I'm re-posting a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

"Random acts of kindness"

Original Post Date, April 15, 2010

This morning when I let Bernie out, I saw this poor little animal that had been run over in the street at the end of my driveway. I couldn't tell if it was a cat or a rabbit but I knew it would be pretty traumatic for the little girls that wait for the school bus across the street from my house.

I decided to walk across the street and give them a lesson in life and death. I explained to them that it was the animal's fault for being too slow crossing the street and as a result was killed by a passing vehicle.

I told them that if they didn't want to end up like that animal, that they should pick up the pace and not dilly dally.

Here they are running for their bus a few minutes later.

It feels really good to make a difference in a child's life.


  1. I loved this post the first time. It never gets old. Just shows how you are always thinking of others. Of course there is always the risk of being tagged the crazy lady on the block. Just thank goodness you didnt fall down your steps or trip on the curb.

  2. Ah, Chrissy... always thinking of others! Run faster, kids! Run faster! Wouldn't want to be road kill!

  3. Well I bet it was delicious! I like it best cooked on a barbecue, with plenty of seasoning. With friends, and bottle of Pinot Noir.
