I am not going to look great in this story.
Not even a little bit, but it’s not as bad as it seems.
Last week, I was speaking at an amazing camp called “BigStuf.”
At dinner time, I was walking through the halls of the hotel when I saw a BigStuf intern carrying six pizzas. Being the jester I am, I said, “That’s a lot of pizza for one person!”
The intern laughed and said, “Ha! It’s not all for me. Do you want a piece?”
Knowing that some nights I eat dinner with the interns, I thought, “Sure, why not?”
I walked to my room and ate the pizza. A few minutes later, I saw this tweet from the African Children’s Choir that was performing later that night.
They also had a photo.
Wow, Jon Acuff, stealing food from African Children’s Choirs.
What could I do?
I had no option but to tweet this:
At the end of the day, it’s about the kids.
I believe that children are the future.
But I also believe that free hallway pizza should never be turned down.
So I believe you can see the dilemma I was in last week.
Tough call. Tough call indeed.
