I wonder what the retention rate is for repeat sellers.
If ever there was a GREAT argument for a citizen legislature. Each of your tree salespeople brought more knowledge and insight than what we hear on an interview on MSNBC or FOX. They are each awesome in their onw way! I'm glad I chose this unusual title while catching up to your prior posts.
Great stuff. I intend to read “never split the difference “

Oh yeah, never knew you were from Buffalo… makes perfect sense
It's a 'slay' thing.... That made me laugh. As far as the WHY of it: I never figured out a response that made sense. Until recently, I did consider making an "art truck" to express the conundrum of deer. I thought of a stuffed Santa, sitting in bed of pick up with a (fake) rifle in his hands and a light up deer strapped to the fender. But some commercial enterprise created one of those blow up lawn decorations of an armed Santa sitting in a tree stand. THAT deflated my idea. Cheers!
I wonder if there can be an album of multiple renditions of hit song “Do you Speak French” done by different artists and different genres? I’d listen to it!
I love the way you look at the world. Here is a Q for you & readers. Why do people have such conflicted relationship with deer? In November it's all Men In Orange, Hunting Deer. In December Men put light up deer forms in their yards. One month they're killing them, the next month deer become icons of holiday season. It's too confusing.
I love these interviews. It highlights how each individual is a mystery and delight.
The Christmas Tree Seller interviews are great! You ask excellent questions (though I'm among those who don't know what metaverse means). Thanks so much for sharing these ordinary moments in such an extraordinary way.
Honestly, I thought "ugh, I don't think I'll bother reading about what Christmas tree sellers have to say" and then as I scrolled I sort of scanned part of Wenzday Jane's interview and, well, went back to the beginning and read them all. And loved them all. Thank you for sharing these!
