My friend Beth W. is really good at keeping it real. Always has been.
Today, when I called her cell phone, she had an 8 foot Christmas tree IN her van, with two kids on either side of the thing. There's nothing like a stab in the eye from a pine tree to get you in the holiday spirit, right? Well, I think it was wrapped, so everyone probably still has their vision.
The best part of our conversation was when she went through a Wendy's drive-thru for some quick lunch before dropping off the preschooler. This is the time of year when everybody likes you to "give a little more", so the cashier at the end of her order asked:
"Would you like to spend 50 cents to save a child's life?"
Beth: "Uhhh, no."
That's my girl. Knocking off the hungry children of the world, one drive-thru at a time.
