I was at the supermarket the other day, and I was reminded of how spoiled we really are, as Americans. We have such excess that at those gourmet food counters, they offer you free samples, free food . . . and people say NO! While I was there, five people, including me, turned down free samples of whatever we wanted while we waited for our orders of more food to be ready. You know, so we wouldn't get bored...or hungry? Ridiculous when you actually think about it, right?
Can you imagine that happening in Africa? People turning down free food? Or in any other impoverished country where they eat dirt sandwiches...without bread...for that matter.
