An unexpected gift

Craig Strachan - Keep Talking!

Digg this! Last week, I ordered a couple of cases of wine from Getwine.co.za. When the wine arrived, Getwine alse gave me a free 100g slab of Lindt chocolate. They didn’t tell me about it when I ordered, they didn’t tell me in the delivery note, the driver didn’t mention it. It was just tucked quietly away inside one of the boxes.

But it can be a fine line between embellishing a story to make it a great story, and telling an outright lie.
