Six hours into my shift, I’m doing my deliveries in a residential area when I drive by a lemonade stand operated by 3 Asian munchkin girls. As they see me drive by they’re screaming out, “lemonade, lemonade.” I pulled over and got out to support their cause. I hate lemonade. They tell you to make lemonade when life hands you lemons but if life didn’t hand you lemons then you can make something else.
Do you know where I can get some lemonade?
Okay great. I’ll have a cup please.
One girl excitedly runs into the house to tell the grown-ups that they “made their first sale!” The other girl excitedly but professionally dispensed my lemonade. I’ve never seen anyone dispense a drink with so much determination and passion. They had this nice lemonade dispenser and even a cash box with an arsenal of change. The whole setup was quite impressive and so cute.
My plan was to drive around the corner and pour it out because I really didn’t want any more sugar in my body. Just 20 minutes prior I had a Dairy Queen Oreo Blizzard(ice cream type treat). I imagined their little faces if they saw me pour out the lemonade and I just couldn’t do it. There was also no lid so I had to drive around holding it in one hand. I just drank it slowly.
That was the best 30 cents I’ve ever spent.
