So, my act of kindness yesterday was that I shared my prize, and invited Becky to go with me. We met after she was done working, and sat in some amazing seats for 3 hours of sheer brilliance.
As we were talking, Becky mentioned that she had mentioned the contest to her husband, and he, like my husband, seemed less than interested in attending. So, in the end, it all worked out. My act of kindness to Becky was a night at the opera, and my act of kindness to our husbands was a night NOT at the opera.
