Silent Donation by Pixie, A M

February 20th, 2010 6:34 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Endow a stranger with a gift (e.g. Flowers or candies) without being seen, heard, or suspected.

Preferably someone who looks like they're having a bad day.

PD) Pixie sez:
Tasking today was absolutely brilliant. This is the first time we've met an active SF0 member, and the first time we've ever collaborated on tasks. This is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. together we ended up doing skill share, her showing me how to make little mario boxes and me teaching her to fire dance, but that is a different praxis for a different time.

We decided that the best gift we could give was wisdom. The kind that makes the person getting it feel good. We also had a cute mario box from the skill share which seemed the perfect way to deliver this gift.

We wrote on little slips of paper many different wise things

we also painted pennies with nail polish and put them in, because humans like shiny things.

A M sez:
(I had the camera, so I took most of the pictures on our outing.)

I found wisdom in a book that Pixie tells me she bought when she was very confused about life:

"Life's Little Instruction Book"

I also came up with my own wisdom. I am wise like that.

Once I had enough wisdom to fill the cube,

I, well, filled the cube. We also threw in some sparkly pennies, because what would a mario box be without coins? and also I'm digging the pennies thing. I can't wait to do 1000 Small (Heavy) Things with ten bucks in brilliantly colored, sparkly shiny pennies.

But I digress.

We found someone to donate to sitting in a common space, reading with headphones in. Pixie said "I bet he wouldn't notice anything at all", rightly as it turned out. She snuck up behind him

and dropped the cube off by his elbow before sneaking away

much to the amusement of the people sitting behind our donee. We sat across the way, waiting to see his reaction, but didn't get much of one. He took out his cellphone and made a call at one point. He glanced around once or twice, and we had to pretend not to be staring at him. It gave me a new appreciation for spies. The point at which he looked up, as if wondering "Where did this mysterious and wise cube come from? Is it manna from heaven?" was the point at which I was pretty sure he'd seen the cube.

Pixie had these books. I mined them for their wisdom to fill the cube.

Just in case it wasn't clear that the mario cube was filled with wisdom and pennies.

I guess this makes it a companion cube. A pretty light one though.


Shinies

I've been on a pennies plus nail polish kick lately. These ones have silver sparkles, gold sparkles, blue, hot pink, black and white, and another color or two I'm forgetting.

We hung around for a little while, but we're not sure if he even noticed the cube. He did look around and, amusingly, up, at one point, which makes me think he did find it.

Great target choice, I like the sneaking shots. I hope he enjoys the wisdom and nail polished pennies.

I'd like to go on record as saying this was brilliant usage of a "?" block. :)
