Howdy,
While in a new part of
Baltimore Sampling
The Buffet at a
Vegetarian Restaurant
I spotted a Shoe Repair
Shop.
Went in And left my
Dress Shoes to be
Re-soled While I
ate.
Sneakered my way across
the Street to the food.
Opened the Paper Bag
The guy gave me.
I found ONE Neon Shoe
String with a Note…
“Flip the Switch to
See in the Dark while
You Walk.”
Of Course I Went Back
to say, “Hey, You Only
Gave me ONE Neon
Shoe Lace!”
The Shop owner Acted
Surprised.
“Oooops.  Ok, come over
here and tell me which
Color You LIKE BEST.”
Bob started Switching
ON a Wall of New Tennis
Shoes All laced with
Flashing Shoe-Strings.
Red
Green
Blue
Yellow
Orange
Purple
Black
Violet
STROBE
Flicker
PULSE
Steady Light
AND THEN It “Hit me”
While Watching Bob’s
Eyes Twinkle.
Right in the Middle of asking
Bob, “And how much is this
Shoe?  And What about
This Red One?”
I Confronted Bob right there…
“You RASCAL.  How many
Poor Suckers have you Lured
back to your store and sold
New FLASHING Shoes to?”
After Bob stopped Laughing.
He admitted, “More than 50%
who come in for something cheap
Order a Pair of 100.00+ Shoes.”
Bob wouldn’t tell me how much
His NEON Shoe Lace BARTER-
Referral System makes him
EXTRA.
But an entire wall of 100-500.00
Brand name Tennis Shoes
all Flashing Brightly?
AND the Store Light
DIMMER SWITCH
on the wall?
We’re Talking Big Bucks.
Thanks,
Glenn
