In case you didn't know, both Reed and I are active in Big Brother Big Sister, and I thought I would share a story about Richard, the 12 year old dude that is my little.
One day I pick up Richard and, as usual, he immediately asks me where we are eating. I tell him Earls, thinking it will be nice to take him downtown, show him the sights, and get him some high quality grub while I peep the Earl's girls. While on the 16th Street Mall FreeRide he starts telling me some story about how his brother brought home the most delicious food ever the other day, goes on and on about some chicken fingers. Then, dead serious, looks up at me and says "You ever heard of Chilis?"
Swear on our DeWalt, right as he is saying this, the bus starts rolling by a Chili's. He is standing with his back to the restaurant and I suddenly was faced with an incredible dilemma; Do I not say anything and go on to Earls and get food that doesn't suck, or stop and get him Chili's?
Earls was fantastic and we ate a ton of food. Jokes, I took him to Chili's.
At the end of the meal he looked up at me, shit all over his face from these buffalo chicken things, and asked me "If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?" I said "I dunno, what about you?" He looked up, smiled, and said "This." Then he boxed up half his meal to take to his brother.
As we hope you all know, we are not just a play hard company that does ridiculous things all the time. Although we do play hard and do ridiculous things all the time. But, we also understand how important stuff like this is. And we hope you do as well.
