Invitations are an ongoing part of life. Hardly a month goes by when we don’t receive some sort of invite to a party or a celebration or to pay someone a visit, and of course, each invitation anticipates some sort of response on our part.
I know that we all were brought up to understand the importance of sharing, but how many times have you found yourself in situations where you struggle to be satisfied with a portion of something, especially when you know that if you could enjoy that something in its entirety, the experience would be so much better? Maybe it’s a bite or two of that dessert that you limit yourself to in an effort to shed a few pounds. Maybe it’s the snippet of the song you were listening to, which you caught toward the end instead of the beginning. My favorite is what some online bookstores do. They give you the first page or two of the first chapter, which is only a tease to make you purchase the rest of the book.
