- colored markers with a note that said “The weather outside may be frightful, but this marker will hopefully make your day delightful.”
- a Hershey’s hug and kiss with a note that said “Everyone deserves a hug and a kiss on Valentine’s Day”
- a Dum-Dumb lollipop
the markers were only given to those in my department and a few others. I expanded to giving candy to the secretaries (who LOVE to receive gifts). But, the lollipops I decided to start giving to everyone. Now I have to say that these were not met with the enthusiasm that I expected. In fact, two people left the markers behind in front of the mailboxes and others left their lollipops behind. But I will not let this deter me. So I asked my wife to purchase 14 dozen plastic eggs and lots of candies, and my son and I spent about 30 minutes filling the eggs.
Hopefully tomorrow these Easter eggs will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
