The National League Championship Series concluded late the other night with a resounding win by the Philadelphia Phillies over the Los Angeles Dodgers to clinch the pennant. As one of the many who stayed up late to watch the finish, I walked into the dining room for breakfast the next morning a little bleary-eyed, but not so much so that I didn’t notice that almost everyone I met greeted me with a smile. I surmised that they all must have been Phillies fans … and that they were smiling in appreciation of the double strand of large faux pearls that adorned my faded Phillies T-shirt. Not so, as it turns out. Soon the source of those happy faces came into view: a large tray of fresh, gooey GS sticky buns—warm and fresh from the GS bakery—specially prepared as a celebration surprise.
Now, that’s really something to smile about!
