The selection of pastries at La Madeleine in Alexandria, Virginia makes me happy that I never diet on vacation.
“Would you like to donate a dollar to fight children’s hunger?” the clerk asks as I check out.
“Sure,” I nod. How can I so no to one dollar when I’m getting ready to dig into a delicious quiche?
“You get a cookie with your donation,” she tells me after I agree to the donation.
“Can you give the cookie to the next person in line?” I may not be dieting but there’s no reason to be reckless.
