Today finds me feeling a bit better, a bit lighter, and every day that passes brings the day that my little New Mexico Family will be here to celebrate Delightful Delilah's first birthday!
She made her first visit to Santa over the weekend. Suffice to say she is not a fan.
What's with the green gloves?
Work at the Pro Shop has been pretty busy...we've had a couple of pretty chilly days, but usually have at least 4 - 7 card players on those days.
Gotta tell you about my experiment, "Operation Bacon Balls." One of my Artists Loft friends has a shop called A Moment in Paradise (Coupon Code THANKU for 30% off until Midnight tonight). She makes these aromatherapy balls in so many fragrances...anyway, she told me that she had a Bacon fragrance. "Hmmmm," I thought. "I wonder, if I put a bag of bacon balls somewhere near the card players, would it stimulate their hunger?" Seriously, just talking about it makes me hungry. The first day, I had it hanging near the cash register, no response...the next time I set it on the counter, and put a little fan behind it to "waft the flavor waves" in their general direction...no response.
Now, if it makes me hungry, why isn't it make them hungry? They are older men, maybe their noses don't work as well as they used to...so I hung the bag of bacon balls under the table they sit to play cards at. Still, no more food orders than normal. Gotta be something else.
So I ordered some candle tarts, bacon scented of course. The first day I melted one (they are big) I only had a couple of guys come in all day. The second day...with the bag of bacon balls hanging under the table and a bacon candle tart warming...I sold 5 double cheeseburgers. SUCCESS!
