The principal at our school has 2 bowls on his desk. One has peanut M&Ms, the other, raw almonds. Both are fair game for all the employees at school. The bowl of M&Ms needs to be replenished every day. The bowl of almonds seems to never change.
When I walk past his office in the mornings and see the bowl filled to the brim with the colorful morsels of deliciousness, I feel happy.
One day, while visiting with the principal; with the plan to satisfy my peanut M&M craving, I noticed the bowl was almost empty. Not letting that deter me, I said out loud that I wanted an orange one. He looked at me as I reached in to the bowl to retrieve the desired goody and said, "I knew you wanted that orange one, that's why I told everyone who came in to put it back!"
It still tasted good!
