Are You A Dud Too?

"It's a funny thing about life, 
once you begin to 
take note of the things
you are grateful for
you begin to lose sight of 
the things that you lack."

and not for what he thinks should be."

is a good day."


"One of the most popular brands of candy in North America is Milk Duds. They’re irregularly shaped globs of chocolate caramel. When they were first invented in 1926, the manufacturer’s plan was to make them perfect little spheres. But with the rather primitive technology available at that time, this proved impossible. The finished products were blobs, not globes. They tasted good, though. Workers jokingly suggested that the new confection’s name include “dud,” a word meaning “failure” or “flop.” Having sold well now for more than 90 years, Milk Duds have proved that success doesn’t necessarily require perfection.
