“But I feel happy,” Cindy beamed smiling ear to ear. She had been at The Center for several months now and felt healed. “I sense the glow.”
“But it’s what’s on the inside that counts,” said The Counselor pulling out a ceremonial stainless steel butcher knife that glinted cinematically in the well placed light.
After the first couple of slashes he knew she was lying. The Counselor clawed through the muck. “Damn!” he exulted. The Counselor prided himself on customer satisfaction. No happiness, no sunshine, no glow. There was nothing in there but her guts and entrails.

03/10/2004 Jon Matza: Both shorts this morning are concerned with charcters that may or may not glow. What does it mean? Like the short OK, but shocked/saddened by the misuse of 'exulted'.
03/10/2004 Craig Lewis (3): The inside/inside pun-joke is a bit Catskills for my taste, but the punchline -- that is to say, the short's ultimate sentence -- is tip-top.
03/10/2004 Will Disney (4): yeah - i like this one. FOUR STARS - how you like that, feldspar?
03/10/2004 qualcomm (3): eh.
03/10/2004 scoop (5): I see your four stars Disney and raise it! Reap the whirlwind, Feldy. Reap it.
03/10/2004 Dylan Danko (2): Not really
03/10/2004 Mr. Pony (4): Yes, I've been to one of these places, and that's pretty much what they do.
03/10/2004 Benny Maniacs (4): Great one liner
03/10/2004 Moe-Ron (3): i second feldspar's "eh"
03/25/2004 anonymous (1): Easier then a low-income teen with no self-esteem. Self-help milieu; punning cliches; biz culture.
