Peter Cottontail was hopping back and forth along the dock, worried as a rabbit could be when he heard a voice.
“Who’s there?” he asked.
“It’s me, Peterbilt,” the voice said.
Peter Cottontail turned to find the sound coming from one of Road Scholar Transport’s trucks, which had been delivering a shipment.
Impressed that a truck could talk, Peter Cottontail began to tell Peterbilt what was troubling him.
“You see,” he began, “Easter is a very busy time of year for me. We made more chocolate this year than we ever did before and I don’t know how I am going to deliver it all in one day. Even if I could, the chocolate will melt in my basket by time I make it to every house. Millions of children are counting on me. If I can’t deliver this candy in time, Easter will be ruined!”
“That’s no problem at all,” Peterbilt assured his furry friend. “For I can help you. You see, the company that I drive for offers 24-hour expedited shipping so your chocolate will guaranteed be delivered to children before they wake up.”
“But Easter is on a Sunday!” Peter Cottontail explained.
“No problem. Road Scholar Transport delivers 24/7 so whether it is a weekday or weekend, your candy will be delivered on-time.”
“But what about the children who live in Florida and Arizona, surely the chocolate will melt by time it is delivered,” Peter Cottontail said with fright.
“Whether it is 100 degrees outside or 10 below zero, Road Scholar’s reefers allow you to specify the temperature you desire and closely monitor your chocolate to ensure that it is transported under the right conditions.”
“This is fantastic!” Peter Cottontail exclaimed.
“They just finished unloading my trailer,” Peterbilt said. “If you want, we can load it and I can have it delivered tomorrow.”
Happily, Peter Cottontail loaded all of his candy and chocolate into Peterbilt’s trailer and bounced with joy as he drove off.
“You’ve saved Easter! I’ll have to tell my friend Santa Claus about this one.”
And Peter Cottontail, for the first time in days, rested knowing that his chocolate was in good hands.
