Tagline: Sandy thought that she had no time for love...then she met Brian!
Observations: I just literally laughed out loud while reading this story. Here's the part that made me crack up:
"Why would I hang up on Ginger Ford's grandson?"
"Because the peaches are a bumper crop this year, and my grandmother refuses to make me a pie unless I ask you out."
So funny! I also loved this line:
"...I am very familiar with dating under duress."
OMG, I just cracked up AGAIN. (That Brian is a very funny guy.) He sold 50 of her shirts and she asks him what his secret was...
"No secret. Just a basic marketing principle: product positioning. You have to convince the customer your product is the one that they should spend their money on."
"How did you do that?"
"I wore the shirt, then I gave them an incentive to buy."
"What was that?"
"I told them if I could sell enough shirts, you might go to dinner with me. Not a single person turned me down."
Bottom line, this story had so much humor in it, I dare anyone not to have loved it.
