I've really fallen behind on my ROAK series but it's not because it isn't on my mind at all times. I've just been lazy which is especially awful considering that this is the Christmas season. But I promise to stick with it.

Today's RAOK was especially random. I was headed to the ATM to do a check deposit when I saw a small group of people gathered around a car that was having some obvious mechanical problems. Admittedly, I found the blocked driveway to be a bit of an inconvenience. And although it was 27 degrees and I was in shorts and covered in sweat (coming from the gym) I stopped to see how I could help.

As it turned out, I was the only one of the group with jumper cables and naturally I volunteered to help. So I swung my car around, stood in the cold and helped the poor girl get a move on. It wasn't my greatest RAOK but it beats driving off and staying warm for my own selfish reasons.
