Subject: Lemonade stand.

Hi, Joyce,

Not sure if you knew, but our kids have decided to run a lemonade stand together this week, in light of recent warm temperatures. I think it sounds like a fun idea! Just wanted to hear your thoughts. I also think it’d be a good idea for them to run the stand outside my house.

I know you and Bill have been doing some landscaping…we want to make sure the kids have the most positive experience that they can!

Yours,

Cheryl

Cheryl,

Yes, I am aware of the lemonade stand. I also think it sounds fun. However, I don’t see the problem in having it in front of our house. The landscaping is almost done-everything is really starting to come together. Take a look for yourself the next time you look out the window at it.

Oh, Joyce!

I hope you didn’t see that first email as me being negative about your yard. It’s a fine yard. Truly. I just figured you’d want it to be in tip-top shape for the public. I always see a house’s yard as a sort of invitation, you know? Kind of a, “Come on in! The water’s warm!” We have to think about the kids right now, and of course, their business’s revenue.

Regards,

Cheryl

Cheryl,

What about their revenue? Their revenue will be just fine in front of our house. It’s a lemonade stand.

Joyce,

I don’t see the reason to undermine your children’s entrepreneurial experiments.

Cheryl,

By no means am I undermining anything my children do. I am always very encouraging when they try something new. But if you’re talking about a possible difference between making 75 cents and $1.00 within an hour because of the way a yard looks, I find that silly.

Joyce,

Well, it makes a huge difference when you’re investing your money in something that stands before an acre of scorched earth.

Take care!

Cheryl,

Would you like to come over and inspect my yard, right now? I can see you standing behind your purple window drape as I type this. Come on! I’ll walk you through it, step by step. I am open to your suggestions.

Joyce,

I’m not sure why you’re being so aggressive with me right now.

Cheryl

 

PS:  These drapes are lavender. If you’d like to venture out of Pier 1 someday, I’d be happy to introduce you to a wide array of window drape designs, styles, and color schemes.

Cheryl,

I will take this all into consideration, Cheryl. Thank you so much.

Oh, Joyce!

I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean to send that to you!
