He came to me first thing this morning, before I had even gotten out of bed.
“Where is all that extra poster board? I want to have a Lemonade Stand today.”
I really didn’t think to deny him. We had plenty of lemonade mix, ice and cups. So what if it is chilly and we live at the end of a cul d sac. I love his eagerness and if no one buys any, I think have a huge thirst for lemonade today. I believe I can find a bunch of dimes around here somewhere.
Little did I know that he wasn’t going to be a passive salesman. He posted a sign at the end of our street and sent his cousin and brothers to shout around that there was cheap lemonade for sale. They knocked on a few doors and made home deliveries to a few others.
His uncle came by and left a generous tip and even his brothers bought a couple cups full too. He kept his little stand open for 2 1/2 hours and made almost $6. He paid his cousin half for all the advertisement he did and put his money in his piggy bank. Good day today.
