After purchasing and reading the book, I thought that I would try something simple. I read that having either peppermint or black licorice on your breath can have positive effects on people you interact with. I decided to send out to the world an “order” for either one. Not long after my day started, someone came to the office asking if I would like some leftover candy. I said okay. She left me black licorice and peppermints. True story.
