Podcast Your Way to Popularity - Plus niceness

Last week, when I was on a walk, some boys were selling bracelets and rings made out of colored rubber bands. I stopped at their lemonade/jewelry stand by the side of the road and looked through their goodies. I wanted to get a ring or everyone in my writing group. As I chose a number of rings the little boy who made them started doing the math and adding up everything in his head and shouting out the numbers each time I picked up a ring - even before I chose it. He was so anxious to get the sale - but he didn't care about me.

They were a dollar each. I said, "Wait, I'm not done yet." But he kept shouting out the numbers. Totally focused on how much he would make.

Then his big brother stepped in and said, "It would be nice if you charged $2.50 for three of them."

He said, "No. They are a dollar each. Three rings for three dollars."

His big brother said again, "Yes and it would be nice if you gave her three of them to her for $2.50."

Pause. No response from the little brother.

Big brother: "It would be nice."

Finally, the younger brother gave in.

But grudgingly.

So it wasn't fully given. Which makes a difference in how the giving feels. I would have appreciated my rings even more if the younger brother had given wholeheartedly.

As a little something that "would be nice" I have pulled together some of my most popular posts and free stuff so you can fill yourself with some goodies after Thanksgiving and through the holidays when you're enjoying family and friends after a feast or get-together.
