The Slice

Visiting a lemonade stand

The two little boys across the street set up a lemonade stand this morning.

We were their first customers.

(They were honest about that. They didn't go for marketing buzz by saying "Oh, we've been swamped.")

"How many?" asked one of the lads.

I told him we would each like one cup.

"So that's two," he said to himself.

Though the price was 25 cents per cup, we paid with a couple of Sacajawea dollars.

The boys' mother explained to her sons that they were special coins.

The older boy noted that he was saving money to acquire a special Lego set.

The lemonade was pretty good, and plenty cold.

Hope they make a million dollars.
