I was sitting at my computer trying to determine what Chinese food to order when through the blinds I noticed something colourful outside the window, moving towards my back door.
I got up and went to the back door. When I arrived I saw a kid standing there. He was about 11 or 12. Short brown hair, green shirt. Oh, and he was holding 5 helium-filled balloons.
He knocked. I opened the door. He didn't say anything, and neither did I. We just looked at each other for a few seconds. Then he held out the hand that was holding the balloons. I took them from him.
The kid turned around and walked slowly down the driveway. He didn't look back. He made a left at the sidewalk and disappeared out of view.
I looked at the balloons. Two blue, a pink, green and a yellow. The yellow one has Mickey Mouse on it. All five were tied to a piece of paper that said "COURTESY OF A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS"
