I think I use this LOL cat every year!!
PROMPT: We see it every year. Giving out free chocolate is an uncannily sure-fire way to inspire even more generosity and gratitude. So, hit the commuters in line at the station, the postman you only ever get thirty-second chats with, the students running between classes – free chocolate, everyone, everywhere.
One option today: buy a bag of chocolate bars, and joyfully distribute them everywhere you go!
It’s funny, everyone seems to love Chocolate Tuesday, but I’ve always felt uneasy about it – I wouldn’t accept chocolate from a complete stranger, or eat a chocolate bar I found lying around… But maybe I’m just a grumpy old bat. Anyway, in the spirit of Chocolate Tuesday, I called into Lidl on my way from my lesson to the office, where I had preparation to do. Happily I found Fair Trade mini- chocolate – bars, which fitted the bill perfectly, and a bunch of tulips for Claire (for yesterday’s act)
On arriving at Bonjour World, I set out the chocolate next to the coffee maker:
I helped myself to one, and left them there for students & staff. I think they were well received! They were very nice…I may have to get another box for myself!! (Is that in the spirit of Chocolate Tuesday?!)
I don’t think there was anything deeply spiritual or holy about the deliverance of chocolate, but I hope that the little label may have sparked an interest in a few people. I’m getting into tweeting a bit now as well! Oooh, get me!
UPDATE ON YESTERDAY’S CHALLENGE:
As I said I was working from home, so I found time (rather longer than I expected!) to make two cards, one for my Directors,
and one for my Head of English:
to say “Thank You” for what they do. I gave Claire a bunch of tulips too – she was very happy!!
