"To get added value, you need to add the value." (Professor John Perkins 4/26/2005)
There are no "quick stories" (as in, "let me tell you a quick story").
Ben & Jerry's
The last time I did the Walk for Hunger, I was elated to complete the 20 miles and be rewarded at the finish line with a delectable Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Bar; this made me very happy.
This year, as I was doing the walk, I was especially looking forward to getting that Ben & Jerry's bar because I hadn't had ice cream in several months as I have been "watching what I eat" in an effort to improve my cholesterol. I thought since I've been so good for so long and did this wonderful 20 mile walk and raised $660.00 that I would allow myself a treat.
Much to my chagrin, they were handing out ice cream bars from a far less appealing brand and I simply refused to indulge in an inferior product. I simply smiled a fake smile, hid my disappointment, and headed for the train to go home - still proud of my accomplishments.
