"S M A R T I E S" - I was catching a Lyft one evening and as I was entering the vehicle, my Lyft driver (can't remember his name) greeted me, offered a pack of Smarties (the one in this pic) and says "Thank you for riding with me and since you were "smart& #34; enough to use our services, I thought it would only be right to give you Smarties" .. nothing creepers about that just yet lol Nonetheless, the driver gives me damn near THE ENTIRE HISTORY of Smarties, like how the company began, where it was originally located, how he admired the brand, etc.. Conversation fillers to help kill the Lyft trip some, BUT what I found interesting was how he stated that he shares the same "spill& #34; to all his riders and one time, he was telling the story to a pair of riders, unsuspectingly knowing, the passengers were the offspring of the founder of the company, Smarties. They were so impressed by his knowledge of the company, that they got his information and offered to supply him with a lifetime supply of Smarties candy.
I didn't ponder too deeply on the validity of his story, but the message behind it sat with me ever since. I've kept that pack of smarties as a reminder on how powerful our thoughts and daily routines can attract the good (or bad) into our lives. Everything eventually comes full circle. #dope #losangeles #lyft #smarties #candy #lawofattraction #thoughts #become #reality #positive #vibes
