Over the weekend I planned one of my escapades as Affiliated Agent Fizz. This particular “hit” took place both in route to downtown and downtown Houston.
I started by purchasing 3 individual packages of Starbucks VIA instant coffee. Then, I went to a craft store and got a bunch of stickers and scrapbook stickers and decorations for coffee. On 3 envelopes, I tricked out each envelope to have a Coffee Theme. In each envelope I put 1 Coffee, 1 Quotation/Inspiration card, 1 Secret Agent L card & 1 note stating that the Monday after the holiday is the worst and that it deserves a coffee.
Once the envelopes were all put together and they looked so cute, I couldn’t help but take a photo.
On the way to work, I usually take Park & Ride because it’s easy and I can read on my way to work. When I sat down and thought about this project, I decided that this would be the perfect place for a “Hit” so I made sure to get onto the second bus, where the Front Seat was readily available. This is great for 2 reasons. First, there is a plastic panel right behind the driver and the left side bends away from the aisle so that it’s not easy to see what I’m doing. Secondly, there’s a little edge of metal that will allow for an envelope to be stuck in there.
It was absolutely easy to place this envelope in light, and then adjust it when the lights were turned off for the drive. Everyone was sleepy and no one ever looks around so I could do my thing and not worry about anyone noticing. The best part was taking the photo. I took it with my cell phone. I put the phone to my head like I was talking on it, turned my head to the right and then snapped the picture. It was GREAT!
My second drop was just outside the office building. There were way too many ‘Muggles’ about, so I couldn’t snap a photo here, but it was gracefully placed while no one was paying attention, something that frequently happens downtown. People keep themselves to themselves
My third drop was in the interior of the office building that I work in. I work on the 58th floor & that entire floor, plus 4 others, are occupied by my company, so I couldn’t put there but the main floor has several chairs in which to sit and they are perfect for a ‘Hit’. The best part about arriving at work at 0630 AM. So… I strategically placed the envelope in the leather chair, snapped a photo and then scurried off before I could be caught!
So that’s it! That’s my RAK (Random Act of Kindness) for this week! I really enjoyed this one and had planned it for well over two months. I had been thinking about my bodies response to the Monday after the holiday and thought that this was just perfect. Hopefully, the three folks who got these coffees enjoyed their Cup of Joe!
