I bid you adieu!
And adieu to you, too!
After a particularly trying day, which I shall not go into here, a couple from Pittsburg stepped into the gallery minutes before I was leaving. We had lovely conversation and visit, they were very complimentary. Before leaving they purchased two of my angels, two I did not intend to sell but rather used as examples of my work; due their great enthusiasm for them I agreed to sell. After they departed I began gathering my things to leave for the day when I spied their sales receipt on the counter. I dashed out the door to the parking lot in order to locate them, and as I couldn't I then popped into fellow merchant's businesses hoping they were still in town, but alas the patrons were not to be found. Returning to the gallery I locked the door and minutes later saw the gentleman hurrying across the parking lot toward the door. Greeting him with receipt in my hand I announced I was happy he returned for it! He replied he had not returned for the receipt but rather came back hoping I was still there, he and his wife couldn't possibly go back to Pennsylvania without purchasing two of my abstracts they had admired the first time! So I bid farewell to my bad day, two angels, and gained two new ones! Godspeed!
