Story Summary

Alex was embarrassed to join her father at his burrito handcart on Take Your Child to Work day. That is until she realized he seemingly knew everyone in the city and they all loved him. And, they all dropped a few coins or more in the pink box that was Alex's college fund. Lucky she was to discover her father's true character before his heart attack on the soccer field.
