Did you know there are more than 200 flavors of Kit Kat bars in Japan?
Pear, purple sweet potato, wasabi, apple vinegar, soy sauce, just to name a few. Don’t forget the bubblegum Kit Kat!
“How are you doing?” Oh, that dreaded question. What should you say when a customer asks? You want to seem human, but not too human. Funny, but not too distracting. So I tend to recycle my answers.

Did you know jungle gyms were invented by a mathematician? The inventor wanted to get his children familiar with thinking three dimensionally, instead of two dimensionally.
