If I can have a just a few
moments of your time, I'd like to tell you a story about how my sister
and I discovered a cure for the common cold, wrote it down on a piece of
paper, but then lost that piece of paper and totally forgot the cure.
We were in Wilmington, Delaware, which is a great place to figure out a
cure for the common cold because very little goes on to distract your
attention, and my sister said something about popcorn, and I said,
"THAT'S IT!" We were so excited! Two humble girls from Vancouver,
British Columbia, visiting Delaware, and WE - without help, no less -
discover a cure for the common cold! Sigh. I just hope whoever finds our
lost piece of paper mistakes it for Orville Redenbacher's secret recipe
Sally Salmon, along with her sister, really did find a
cure for the common cold, and really did lose it.
