Pretzel pusher

“Hey Bugaboo, how was your day?”

“Good. Mama, I sat next to Melissa at lunch today.”

“That’s cool, what did you talk about?”

“Well, she asked me could she have one of my pretzels.”

“Did you give her one?”

“Well, I told her she could buy it from me.”

“Buy it from you? You didn’t just let her have one for free?”

“No, Mama. They are my pretzels.”

“Well, that’s true, but you can share your pretzels sometimes with your friends.”

“Well, but she can buy it.”

“You crazy kid, you’re going to make your friends buy your pretzels? For how much money?”

“Um, I think maybe forty one dollars.”

“Wow buddy, if that works out, you could be the family breadwinner.”

“Yeah.”

that’s brilliant. do you think i also could sell pretzels for $41 a piece even though i am in grad school and not elementary school? because that solve a lot of financial concerns.
