MISSION: Simple Smile

I love soda. Probably a little too much. And call me weird, but there's something about getting a can or bottle of soda from a machine. It's fun, not to mention delicious.

I particularly loved Affiliated Agent C's fun, simple, and creative way to show another fellow soda lover that kindness exists everywhere--even the vending machine!

Date: Wednesday, 18 August 2010

Location: Government Center South building; first floor soda machine; downtown Indianapolis, Indiana

Time: 11:15 a.m.

Affiliated Agent C tells us about her first mission:

I've been collecting various items over the course of 2 weeks so that I may begin completing some missions. I was meeting a friend that works in a very large downtown building. What a perfect place for my first mission! It's been very hot and humid for the last couple of weeks here in Indianapolis. As I was passing by a coke machine on my way to her office, it occurred to me that I could do something super simple right then!!! I was already semi-prepared by having some quotable cards and Secret Agent cards already in my purse. I dug out some change (the Cokes were $.75, but it was totally worth it!). While I was sitting at my friend's desk waiting for her to finish up, I grabbed some items she had in a drawer. I made a little card attaching the 3 quarters as the eyes and nose and drawing in a smile. I used curly ribbon as hair :)

I nervously walked down the hall covering my creation with my large purse. I stuck everything in the slot that the Coke comes out of. I kept hearing footsteps down the hall and I worried that I would get caught! My back was turned to the entrance of small room that the snack/Coke machine was in . I kept turning around to make sure no one was behind me. I didn't have my regular camera, but I snapped a couple of pics with my cell phone :) My heart was pounding out of my chest the entire time! I'm proud to say that my first mission was a success!

I'm looking forward to my next missions. Until next time.....

Affiliated Agent C, what a fun and creative and easy way to share kindness! I know your next mission will be just as outstanding! Can't wait!
