Hello. My name is Louise Curtis, and I’m an awesomeaholic. Since late March 2010 I’ve done something awesome every day, and blogged about it.
Many of those awesomenesses were derived from a list at steffmetal.com/101-ways-to-cheer-yourself-up, including today’s one: Leave a present for a stranger in a public place.
I dreaded this one, because I had a suspicion that (a) no-one would be trusting enough to take it, and (b) there simply wouldn’t be enough people passing by (Canberra is just not a good place for crowds).
For those reasons, I left the present unwrapped, clearly labelled, and on a wooden table at a shopping centre – on Christmas Eve.
If scores of low-budget Christmas movies have taught us anything at all, it’s that the words, “It’s Christmas!” can excuse any eccentricity, up to and including minor criminal behaviour.
I even put this blog address on the card, figuring someone is more likely to accept free chocolate if they feel they’re being advertised to.
I have absolutely no idea what happened to that chocolate, and it is likely I will never know.
Side note: I extended the heiferness deadline until the new year, so keep those comments coming and you’re effectively giving to charity. (Yes, I admit it, I just like reading comments, no matter how random.)
