Do you remember doing the same thing at vending machines? Only you'd check both the change receptacle AND the drop area to see if anyone forgot to grab their goodies?
You might not have done that, but I did. Hit the jackpot once, too, when I found like $3.00 in quarters in a row of newspaper boxes. It was awesome!
For this 23rd act, I decided to give someone a smile, the kind that lit me up when I found that jackpot of quarters. I went to the first vending machine I found, slid my dollar in, and entered the numbers for peanut m&ms (my favorite!) And then I left them sitting there. In the bottom of the drop area. Waiting for the next person to come along and smile as they find their freebie.
And this act is for the teacher that really made me look at my classroom differently that Monday when I returned to school. 27 year old Victoria Soto hid her students in closets and cabinets to save their lives, in exchange for her own. When I walked back into my classroom that Monday morning, I looked for where I could do the same if need be, where I could hide a student or two or 24.
