Idea Truck is on the road!
The weekly menu:
Little People/Big Ideas
Ideas About Food
Critters and Other Creepy Crawlers
Ideas About Space.
What would you have chosen? Hands-down most popular was Little People/Big Ideas...
What a joy to see customers' reactions when they read their idea. I felt like a mad magician, sifting through the stack of ideas, searching for the perfect one to match the person. Some stood in awe at the philosophical question posed, others burst out laughing...and always that smile of wonder. I am a drug pusher of wonder! I hope it lasts forever! Such a priceless tiny moment to see into a stranger's brain and to consider what they've written. I hope they contact all of you with the email left behind.
And repeat customers--so many repeat customers--wanting more ideas!
Ah, and seeing their faces go somewhere else, busy trying to create an idea of their own (partially b/c some people thought they had to make an idea based on the menu. gotta make that clear you can submit an idea about anything)...
Anyway, down to business...your rewards are coming this week. Thank you for your patience and belief in the project. And keep submitting ideas.
