My lovely children ... continued

Awe yes, there's Tricia ...the epitome of grace and beauty. The years and years of dance lessons and pageants have not gone to waste ... she's as graceful and beautiful as a swan. Then there is Kiersten ... She's ... well, let's say a little different ... perhaps quirky is a good way of putting it.
Kiersten was in need of a summer job, so she has been helping me at the Renaissance Festival. It's been a good arrangement, she's down stairs tending shop and I am able to be upstairs working. Sunday we were having an unexpected large increase in sales of little fairies (scroll down a few posts to see the Fairies I am referring to). She was selling an abnormal amount ... but only when I wasn't there with her . It's loud out at festival with a lot of background noise, so it's hard to hear EXACTLY what is going on downstairs when I am upstairs. Admittedly I was curious, so I started paying close attention. I couldn't hear WHAT was being said, but I did hear gasps of horror from people down stairs. Turns out Kiersten has been talking people into buying the fairies by telling them that the ones that aren't sold have to be euthanized .... that she has to do it herself ... and that some REALLY fight back. Yes, ONLY Kirry could come up with such a plan to increase sales.

OMG, that is absolutely hilarious...and quite the sales tactic. How could anyone resist? I love her and her great imagination. Good one.
Peace & Love,

I know! Isn't she a hoot?! She certainly has an unusual sense of humor, that's for sure. I don't know where she comes up with this stuff.

OMG LOL!! Only my sister could think of such a thing...but I have to admit, if she used such a line on me, I would buy one :)
