What I gave: flowers and chocolate for free

What I received: $30 in two hours, a bullet (yes, a bullet from a gun), a cookie, a bottle of water, really great compliments, questions about purpose.

I have to wonder if the “service” I was providing was worth the money I got.

Maybe I shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
