The Slice

The Wednesday Slice question

How did you do when, as a little kid, you were asked to sell candy or gift-wrapping paper to raise money for some extracurricular group, club or youth sports organization?

A) Fine. My mom sold all that stuff at her office. B) I tried to remember, “Always be closing.” C) My parents bought it all. D) I learned that I was not cut out for sales. E) Couldn't give it away. F) I went door to door and learned a lot about life. G) The whole thing struck me as rather Dickensian. H) I was a regular Willy Loman. I) The pressure sort of got to me and I really started pounding the Dr. Pepper. J) Other.
