kissing booth


we turned our old lemonade stand into a temporary kissing booth in honor of valentine's day (it needed a new paint job anyway and, i must say, i love the way the stripes turned out).  
so, lucy set up shop out front yesterday and sold "kisses" (of the hershey persuasion) to passing neighbors.  


she was quite vigilant waiting for any passing car until dark, when i had to force her to come in.
if she had to temporarily leave her post (for something important like a bike ride around the cul-de-sac) she was sure to leave a replacement standing watch for potential customers...


if you have ever talked to lucy, you can imagine how she is finishing up the story she was telling me here with her own personal catchphrase, "ya' know?"


in addition to the clear chocolate smudges around her mouth, there was also plenty of evidence to how much she was snacking on her own goods...  yes, lucy has a serious littering problem.  she thinks the world (or the floor of our house) is her trash can.  we have some things to work on...


she had quite a few drive-thru customers (or just the same one over and over again... and i am pretty sure he was just shop lifting kisses as he went by)...
