Rocks for Sale
Like father like son, and daughter in this case I guess. Abby and Josh take after their father when it comes to being entrepreneurs. In the summer they like to do the "normal" kid’s thing to make money, a lemondade stand. On Sunday however, they decided to start a rock sale.
The kids of course wanted to dig out the table and chairs they usually use for lemonade sales. It was four o’clock in the afternoon so I urged them to just use the picnic table for their sale table. For once Abby went along with it, at least for a few minutes. They had been collecting and breaking rocks for quite some time earlier in the day so they had a good selection to choose from lined along the picnic table.
Business was obviously slow as I told them it would be since any guests we had already checked out. With business being pretty much non-existent they decided to bring their collection inside of the store for me to sell. They placed their rocks with hand made price tags kersplat on the front counter.
I looked at their rocks in amazement. Pretty rocks they were, but $20.00 for a rock? There were some better values in some of the small ones, 3 "P’s" That’s pennies in grade school. I thought I would try to sell them online but I’m afraid with postage I won’t have too many takers.
I guess if it keeps them off of the streets then I should be happy with them selling rocks for fun.
