The Little Yellow Bird. Part 41. The Triplets Lemonade Shop
Thursday, March 10, 2011
It was one of those mornings when Daisy had something on her mind. She asked her mom if she would allow her to have a lemonade shop.
Tulip second the request, and Rosy thought it was great idea too. Grandpa asked the Triplets if they would offer sugar free lemonade for citizens that might be challenged by diabetes.
Daisy said, " That could be arranged grandpa, we could keep packets of that kind of stuff in our shop definitely for those that are in need of it."
Tulip said, " We could also offer sugar free candy too, the chocolate kind."
Rosy said, " We need a building. Somebody has to tell our daddy to either rent, lease or buy us a prefabricated structure ."
The triplets created a neat little blue print of how they wanted everything arranged because they also wanted a nice round cement table with cement benches for patrons, and customers.
Daisy worked on their sign. She used white paint for the base color on their wooden sign. Their place of business would be called, " Daisy, Tulip, And Rosy's Delicious Lemonade. " The letters were done in red.
It was on a Saturday when they had their Grand Opening . Their daddy wasted no time in setting up their business.
Their first customers were grandma and grandpa. Grandpa asked Daisy if she served sugar free lemonade.
Daisy said, " Yes sir, what size cup would you like. Right now we only offer pink lemonade."
Grandpa said, " I will have a large cup of pink lemonade please."
Daisy asked Tulip to fix grandpa a mighty large cup of pink lemonade because he looked very thirsty.
Rosy said she would help by adding the sugar free stuff to the cup , and by stirring it.
They served their grandpa the most delicious lemonade he had ever tasted in his entire life. Grandpa sat down and drank it all up while talking about his old days when he used a plow mule to raise garden vegetables. He paid the triplets twenty five cents for his delicious drink.
Daisy immediately opened up their cash box and dropped grandpa's twenty five cents in it. Daisy asked grandpa if he needed anything else.
Grandpa also asked Daisy if she had any sugar free chocolate candy, and Daisy sold grandpa some delicious candy for twenty five cents.
Grandma also asked Daisy for some sugar free lemonade , and chocolate candy. Daisy asked grandma what size cup would she like to have.
Grandma told Daisy that she wanted a large cup as well. Daisy, Tulip, and Rosy prepared , and served their grandmother a delicious cup of pink lemonade.
The triplets earned fifty cents from their grandma. The chicks opened their cash box, and dropped the change in it.
Later , on their first Saturday afternoon of business , the triplets had five more customers. Their mother, father, the Red Cross nurse, a Marine Corp guard, and a four star general from the Pentagon purchased lemonade and chocolate candy.
By the end of the day the triplets were very tired. Rosy and Tulip had sore arms from stirring lemonade. Daisy also said her feet were sore from standing up behind the counter all day. They closed their shop, and did their office work.
Daisy , Tulip, And Rosy figured out their expenses for the day , and saved it in order to buy more supplies for their business on Sunday.
The triplets did so well in their business that they decided to add instant ice tea to their menu.
The triplets worked so hard that they went to bed early after rubbing their legs, and backs with Ben Gay.
God Bless Everyone
