Sometimes you are walking around, lugging ten pounds of law textbooks, papers and other kinds of horrible elements of torture. Perhaps you wonder why you ever thought it was a good idea to sign up for law school, or maybe you’re just stressed and thinking of final exams.
And then, you see a line of people bending around the corner. They are standing around, patroning a miraculous little blue-and-white van with the words “Ben and Jerry” stenciled on its side. You get your wallet and root around for a couple of bucks because ice cream on a warm day sounds like a good idea.
But when you get to the front of the line, the handsome guy in the blue t-shirt hands you a little container, smiles and tells you that a) it’s Greek Frozen Yogurt and not ice cream, and b) it’s FREE.
“Are you serious? This is so great!”
Thank you, anonymous law school student, for letting me see what pure and unbridled happy gratitude looks like.
