lucasListen.  We did not get out of bed this morning to be mediocre.  We got up to face the world head on, with a smile on our faces and a zest for life!  I, for one, think you’ll find life “zestier” with a true friend by your side.  Plus, let me remind you; a good friend is much cheaper than a therapist.    My name is Lucas and I’m here at the animal shelter waiting for you.  What time will you be by to pick me up?
