30 Second Story…….Benjamin’s Foot Long

Benjamin and his wife sat together, sorting old family photos while watching their favorite show, Jeopardy.  At the commercial break, he turned to Donna and said, “If I hear that Subway commercial one more time, I going to throw the TV out the window!”

Benjamin, now 97 years old, looked down at the photo of himself as a young bread salesman and sighed.  He had started his little business selling foot long loaves of bread to folks in the Philadelphia suburbs back in the 1930′s.  Much to the customers delight,  Ben would knock on their doors every Thursday and begin singing “Five… Five Cent…. Five Cent Foot Looong!”

While he never made it rich as a Bread Man, Benjamin did cash in later in life as a jingle writer.
