And Then There’s Curb-Appeal


That’s the 57th car that has slowly driven by since lunch, Daddy. That radio commercial with me singin’ must really be working.” Amanda was beaming.

“I do believe we have a hit, honey.” Dad tousled the curly hair atop his daughter’s head. “What’a you think, Charlotte?”

“You nailed the commercial, but you ain’t gonna make any money with slow drivers that stare.  

“So Miss All-knowing, what’a you think we need to do?”

“Well, maybe having the jingle was money well spent, but a lot could be said for improving the curb appeal of this place.”
