Who Moved My Cheese? Everyday Hem, Haw, Sniff, and Scurry went about their business collecting and eating cheese.
Every morning, the mice and little men put on their jogging suits and running shoes, left their homes, and raced around the maze looking for their favorite Cheese. They each found their own kind of cheese one day at the end of one of the corridors in Cheese Station C.
