The World Finest Chocolate and Other Things

It’s what, two weeks or so now that the kids out there have gone back to school and already my doorbell is ringing.

“Hello, we are trying to raise money for our school band…”
“Hello, we are trying to raise money for our soccer team…”
“Hello, we are trying to raise money for our library…”
“Hello, we are trying to raise money for our underwater basket weaving class…”

“… Would you like to buy [insert any number of things] for [x amount]?”

I cannot help but support these schools, all of which are unknown to me, and buy their chocolates, magazines, cookies and whatever else is being sold. Although, shouldn’t the kids be focusing on their studies rather than seeing who can earn the most money?

Side Note – If you come to my door telling me you are from the inner city of Detroit and I ask why you left Michigan and you respond with “Oh I grew up in Detroit not Michigan”. I probably won’t buy anything from you, as your story of surviving gang fights and whatever B.S. you fed me, has just fallen apart. Now get off my porch!

I realize already, this is going to be an expensive year but bring on the World Finest Chocolate, I’m saving room.

    I’ll make sure to send them your way, when they get to my house. :)

    Please, only pass along the ones selling chocolate bars for a $1. I’m in love with the ‘Worlds Finest Chocolate’ right now :)

    I was having dinner with some friends the other night and the doorbell rang. Apparently it was the fifth time she had stopped by to sell magazines. Vanda ordered Cooking Light.

    Isn’t it weather related? The magazine guys always show up when it’s sweltering outside. The environmentals and the peace groups show up when it’s below zero.
