5yo DS is trying to earn money. To support him in this endeavor, I offered to let him have and sell all the extra basil plants that sprouted up from my massive basil shrub last year. He found some extra pots in the garage, and I let him use the leftover, half full bag of potting soil. But he's in charge of contacting clients and repotting each plant.
Today he called my dad and launched into his little speech,
DS: "Hello Grandpa. This is your grandson, James Smith. How are you today? I am calling because I am selling basil plants and I was wondering if you needed one."
Dad: "I sure do. How much are you charging?"
DS: "Oh, just $30"
Dad: "$30?!? that seems like an awful lot. Why is it so expensive?"
DS: "Well, I want to be rich."
Dad: "well, I can get a basil plant from the store for only $2.50"
DS: "How about $5.27? You get a plant, and a pot and the dirt, and everything!"
The call was on speakerphone and I was cracking up. The final price was $5, and we're going to be delivering it tonight
