Now to anyone doesn’t live in Collegetown, New York, this statement has little significance. Nevertheless, this is critical to everyone and you all should be flocking to Ithaca to enjoy the above mentioned hiatus.
Jason is the middle aged owner of a convenience store in Collegetown. He is notoriously nasty and has made many a sorority girl cry rivers into her Fro Yo (a low calorie frozen dessert favorite).
Jason’s Lent promise has been big news. I’ve had a number of conversations over the past weeks regarding Jason’s pledge to kindness. In fact, I was talking to my friend Mo about it recently.
“I was in Jason’s today, and he was being really mean to a girl,” she said. “I was surprised, and then I looked at the time – 5 pm. She should have come back later.”
So get your Fro Yo with a smile while you can – this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. But check the clock before you go.
