Peddling Popcorn

Peddling sounds so much better than "pimping" but that's really more what it feels like. 'Tis the time of year when every school and every preschool and every organization attempts to add to their coffers by selling...something. The local middle school is selling cookie dough. The elementary school is selling magazines. And my sons? Well, they are selling popcorn. Popcorn is the Boy Scout equivalent of Girl Scout Cookies. It's their mainstay. And I have not one, but two boys selling it.

So here's my appeal...if you would normally have any inclination to buy popcorn from a cute little boy in uniform that might show up on your doorstep, would you sadly decline buying from that cutie and buy from my cuties instead? I'm sure we'll have our order forms with us, well, everywhere we go. They are selling microwave popcorn (transfat free) and popcorn tins of all varieties.

Just planting a seed since some cute little guy will probably be showing up on your doorstep soon to beg you to buy, and my cute little guys live in a neighborhood that has been TOTALLY picked over already by the local schools (living walking distance from the school will do that). And we'd even be willing to show up on your doorstep in uniform if that's what it takes :-)

Thanks!

If they come to our door, we'll buy some (I guess we'll buy some even if they don't).
