Lately, I have been working on our show schedule and getting excited about putting up our booth at different events. We always enjoy the people we meet and get a chance to chat with. I’m always delighted by someone’s sense of humor. Most people just love to have fun!
So… here’s a story. Last August we were set up under the trees in Ridgway (beautiful setting) and a young man walks in who makes my heart jump! He looked just like my son Jeff!! Son Jeff had recently moved out of Colorado to California and I was devastated. It took me a couple moments to realize that, although the body style was the same, those sunglasses, goatee and ball cap did not indeed belong to Jeff.
The young-man-customer looked at me quizzically, so I told him how similar he looked to son Jeff and how much I missed my son and then I asked him if I could have a hug! He laughed. I called my husband over to see the Jeff-look-alike and he agreed that this guy looked like he belonged to us! The young man was great … asking what was for dinner, etc. and we traded quips and had fun!
When the wife of the young-man-customer found a Tapestry Teardrop to buy, we proceeded with the transaction and he asked, “Do we get the Family Discount?”
