As most of you know, we have a lot of fun with the people who come into our booth at Fairs and Festivals. We laugh and joke with them and enjoy their banter back at us!
One of my standard remarks is about the weight of a lady’s purse. I tell her that, if her purse is too heavy it must be because she carries Too Much Money, and all she needs to do is spend some of that and she will be just fine. And, also, she could use a wonderful tapestry/fabric purse which start out light-weight, then, when she loads it with money, it’s not such an issue!
Of course, I get all sorts of answers! Mostly, people smile and say, “Yeah, I wish it were money!” or “Money, ha! It’s all the junk I carry!” Occasionally, someone goes along with the program and tells me, “Well, that must be it!” or “You’re right! I hadn’t thought of that!”
But, this summer I had a lady say, with a serious straight-face, “Oh, Idohave a lot of money … it’s a burden, actually.” I laughed, but later wondered if she really was joking with me….. ??
