Sally Starts Early!

Sally was coming over.  Believe it or not, she was going to start her online Christmas shopping already, and wanted some ideas from me.

“Come right in!” I smiled, as I opened the door at the sound of the bell.

“I’m so glad you are going to help me,” Sally said.  “I love seeing what your Bbest team members have for sale.  You know I’m shopping for some friends that have favorite colors, don’t you?” she asked.

“Yes, that’s what you said,” I responded.  “And what colors are we looking for today?” I queried.

“Well, Susie loves red.   Lisa’s favorite is blue.  And Maggie’s favorite is purple,” Sally replied.

“Oh, do I have some great things for you to look at!” I said excitedly.  “Let’s start with red,” I continued.

“Those are simply gorgeous,” exclaimed Sally.  “It will be so hard to choose just one,” she said.

“Well, that isn’t everything there is in red,” I responded. “All you have to do is go to Etsy and type in Bbest team red, and you can see lots more selections in red,” I added.

“What about the blue?” asked Sally.

“Let’s check those out now, “ I answered.

“Well, I just don’t know what to say,” said Sally.  “Everything is so beautiful, and you tell me there are more I can go see!  How will I ever choose?” asked Sally.

“Guess you’ll just have to get them all!” I laughed.

“Wish I could, wish I could,” sighed Sally.  “But, all this shopping has made me hungry!” Sally said, licking her lips.

“Come on,” I grinned.  “I’ll treat you to a chocolate sundae at our favorite ice cream place.”

“Mmmmmm!” Sally said, as she headed for the door.  “We can’t get there fast enough for me!”
