Feb. 24 is Inconvenience Yourself Day. It’s in observance of doing little things for others for a day. In six words, tell of one way you can do something for someone else today – and then go and do it!Who knew there was such a day? Eli's inconvenience is what I'd call a Random Act of Kindness, but no matter how you phrase it a good deed is still a good deed. I submitted my suggestion. When I read today's post I was impressed by the number of people were doing deeds both big and small. Me? I volunteered to play nicely on the road when I drove around. Specifically, I said "Traffic Jam? No, YOU go first." (I guess that's two sentences, isn't it? Maybe I need to learn to follow directions better.)
Anyhoo, Mother Nature didn't check with my plans to inconvenience myself when she dumped several inches of snow on my area. The worst of it happened just before morning rush hour, so most schools and a few businesses closed for the day. By late morning the temperature had climbed above freezing and the roads looked pretty good, so I decided to venture out and run a couple of errands. There were very few cars on the road or in the parking lots, and no chance to practice inconveniencing myself to be courteous to another driver.
I feel guilty not following through on my commitment, so I'll transfer my inconvenience to tomorrow.
