Mister Salesman

Even though it has been over a week since Halloween, my son still has a lot of candy left. Ever the creative thinker, he has found a solution for what to do with all this candy.

"I'm going to sell it," he announced.

"You're going to sell it?" I asked. "To whom?"

"To my friends."

I couldn't understand why anyone would need more Halloween candy. "Don't you think people have had enough?"

He shook his head. "No. They already ate all of theirs. I'm sure they want more. They'll buy mine."

Okay, then. So, the boy is going to take some to school. Let's see how well he's able to market his snack-size Snickers bars.

  1. A quarter each and he could have ten bucks in no time. Clever dude.
    I would've had my candy gone by now.

    1. He is clever! I'm not sure how many he actually sold, though.

  2. oy, shouldn't he just share it and give it away to the poor ones instead of doing it the American way and selling it?

    1. There's a few dentists around here that collect candy and do just that. Guess Bubba wanted a few extra dollars.

  3. I must admit its what we do.

    Put it in what was a posh coffee jar, decorate the lid with a circle of Christmas paper, tie on a piece of ribbon and a label. They sell for £1.50 at the Church Christmas Fayre were Mr T is Deacon

  4. It's not a bad idea. When I was in school, I totally would have bought some leftover Halloween candy.

  8. Careful. Schools tend to be picky about who can sell on campus. It might be against the rules. He could get into trouble for this.

    1. Hnmm. I'll have to ask him about that. I've never heard of any rules against it, but we'll double check.

  9. I would never have thought to sell it. I gave away the candy I didn't care for, though. ;)

    1. I don't think I'd go through the trouble of selling it. But good for him for giving it a shot.

  13. It will be funny if your son goes into business as an adult. You'll have a funny story to share with him.

    2. I did not know about the Savannah Children's Book Festival. I don't think I can do it this year, but next year, when my Bubba and Squirt book comes out, I'll see if I can. Thanks for telling me about it.
