A Business is Born

Riley sells his first dozen eggs for $3!


He has it all rehearsed...what he will say, how he will say it, how to respond to what they might say, etc. He's decided he'll say, "Excuse me Sir (or Ma'am), Would you like to buy some farm fresh eggs?" When they ask how much they cost, he'll say, "Three dollars and no cents." This is because as we were deciding on the final cost of this delicious product, the conversation went a little something like this:

Me: We should sell them for $3 a dozen.
Riley: Okay, but how many cents?
Me: Just three dollars.
Riley: Yes but how many cents will there need to be?
Me: No cents. Just three dollars.
Riley: Okay then. When they ask how much they cost, I'll say "$3 and no cents."
Me: Perfect.

Note: Riley taking pictures is like a the Goodnight Moon book. Instead of finding a mouse on every page, Riley strategically places his truck to be photographed.)

I wish I could get Riley to deliver to Eureka. I buy eggs from a couple of different women and the price is also $3 and no cents, but they aren't half as much fun as Riley.
