FUN MONDAY - RAK
This week Little Mouse wants to know at least one RAK : Tell us anything you want, what you did, why you did it, if it was done in secret, how it made you feel, or anything else.
I find this question rather difficult. First of all I didn't know what a RAK is and thought maybe there is a writing error and it should be RAG. But this wasn't possible either because the definitions of "rag" in my dictionary didn't fit at all the question. Finally I got the explanation that I should talk or describe an act of kindness I did !
I really don't know. What is an act of kindness ? Saying "good morning" to my postman, neibours or any person I meet in the morning ? Or letting a person with only two articles passing first at the cashier ? Stopping to let people crossing the street ? To me this is not kind but only polite.
My friend (and neighbour) was sick the whole week, so I did her shopping and looked after her. Is that kind ? I think it is rather normal, because she would do the same for me.
Conclusion I am not a kind but a normal person and even that would be contested by Mr. G.
