In the Spirit of the Season


I don’t walk this far north on Connecticut Ave (in Van Ness) that often anymore but this past weekend it reminded me of one of the nicest things a stranger ever did for me. Back in the day I bought an oddly out of place rattan chair at Pier 1. It was gigantic and couldn’t fit in my car. So my girlfriend (at the time) drove the car home and I was walking down Connecticut Ave toward the Zoo with a huge chair balanced on my head. A random stranger pulls over in an SUV (a woman in her 40s and asked me if I needed some help). We put the chair in the back and she drove me all the way home. It remains the most random act of kindness I’ve personally experienced.
