In a few days, this vase and its contents will sit on the reception desk of the hair salon Chloe, my mom and I patronize. They have offered to serve as an “authorized dealer” for Chloe’s duct tape pens, so Chloe spent a good portion of the last few days putting the finishing touches on her flowers and the sign announcing “Chloe’s Crafty Creations,” a name that may soon need to be trademarked by the IP lawyers at my firm.
I have a feeling that these pens will be gone quickly. In which case she may need to seriously consider hiring a couple of friends to help her make the merchandise. After all, she will have a college education to fund in the not-too-distant future!
