I came home to a wonderful stuffed envelope full of swag from Puck in thanks for my appearance at the “Take a Bow Carnival”.
It included (in part) pencils, a ruler, stickers, keychains, bracelets, magnetic inspirational poetry, and a notepad all branded with pro-mentoring and/or anti-drug slogans.
Bunnies available from www.theteenline.org
It also included a testimonial:
“I’ve been a fan for a while, so I was thrilled when Jusby was able to stop by my event. Everyone loved him, they couldn’t stop talking about it.”
She also mentioned being devastated in a Stella Marrs “no pie?” way… and that got me to thinking that I should either give out the postcard with the kitten or design my own for those clients who opt out of the pie option.
For a $60 investment I could get a hundred of them…. OR I could reassess how I pitch the pie in the first place (and buy 60 pies). For example, I think I should proceed with the assumption that when Jusby brings a pie SOMEONE WILL GET IT!
With a self-assured air, I need to simply put that whipped topping in the pan. It’s a sure bet that someone will volunteer once I start asking. With the addition of the mini pie tins I salvaged from the Big Lots Pecan Pies I can always start small and work my way up. There’s a place for diplomacy, and there’s a place for pie-in-the-face.
Puck’s envelope did not include the spats, and I was devastated in a Scrooge McDuck kind of “I’m the SECOND richest duck!?” way.
Note the spats!
