Very skinny Jeff always smiles.
Hagai wrote him a very sad story about two tadpoles who never became frogs. Very skinny Jeff still smiled.
I showed him a bowl of delicious blueberries. Then I ate every single one of them. Right in front of him. But very skinny Jeff kept smiling.
Very skinny Jeff spent two weeks in my office. He didn’t eat, he didn’t sleep. But he kept right on smiling.
So I had an idea. I took Jeff out of my office. I put him in the elevator and pressed all the buttons. He went up and down all day. But even that didn’t stop him from smiling.
In the end nothing seemed to help. So there was no alternative. I took Jeff to see Handless Hank.
Handless Hank told Jeff his sad story. About how he cut himself offhandedly.
Very skinny Jeff told Handless Hank that life involves overcoming challenges, making the best of every situtation. And smiling. Always smiling.
Very skinny Jeff smiled. Hank didn’t.
Jeff said goodbye to Handless Hank.
I took him back to my office. He kept smiling. Finally I understood.
So I smiled too.
