So, Is It A Grind?

--by mitu915, posted Dec 7, 2007

I am sharing my Smile Card story which I used at a local coffee shop today. It is presented in the form of a poem.

"So, is it a Grind?"

It's a grind is the name of the place,

and perhaps the name of your life sometimes,

but when you stop and take a chance,

and make someone else on the inside dance,

it may be different and feel weird at first,

and it might sound a bit like work,

but all it took was a few dollars, an exchange of words,and a little white tag,

to produce two coffee drinks,

which made a mother and son glad,

So, next time when you think your regular routine needs some spice,

maybe you could think about doing something nice?
