Question Of The Day
...a container of mixed nuts. At a ridiculously high price.
Here's the story:
Yesterday evening our doorbell rang and when I opened the door a young girl was standing there with a box full of containers of mixed nuts. She was a first-year engineering student, she told me, at our local university and she was going door to door fundraising. I also learned that she's not from around here; her hometown is almost three hours away. She was sweet and adorable and very polite. I would have said "no, thank you" if she didn't remind me so much of my daughter who is attending university in another city. And so I caved. I'm such a sap.
