Wednesday Wrap-Up: Audience Dare

We made it!  How was your day?  This is our new Wednesday night feature: The audience dare!

This was suggested by the lovely Miss Sally J. and I really like the idea.  Today’s dare is to Pay It Forward.

I am a sucker for Holiday season giving cheesiness.  I love a Christmas movie with a “the spirit is in the giving, not the getting” type of message.  I also really love random acts of kindness – both performing and receiving.  So your challenge for today (or tomorrow if you’re reading this at home and won’t be going out again) is to do something nice for a stranger.  Pay the toll for the person behind you, give $5 or $10 towards the person’s dinner behind you in the fast food lane, or the Starbucks or wherever.  Short on cash? Be creative.  And don’t forget to tell us about it in the comments today or tomorrow. Here is a little song that came up on my Pandora today.  I’m taking it as a sign.
