Life is not fair

A friend's blog ( posed the question, "Has life ever been unfair but in a good way for you?" and the first thought that came to me was when I was in high school my mom worked for the candy shop, Ye House of John L. Bailey, whose owners had the philosophy that employees (and their daughters?) could eat all the chocolates they wanted --they'd soon get sick of them. I would go up to the attic where the chocolates were all lined up in rows...I quickly learned the meaning behind the differentiated swirls that told what fillings were inside. I certainly felt privileged then and on the receiving end of the positive "unfair" side of things. And I don't remember getting sick of them...
