Carlotta and Leonardo were waiting for customers to visit the store on a very quiet afternoon; happily there were not many days like this.
“Leonardo, you’re really witty and know a lot of jokes, tell me one – I’m really bored…”
“Okay, why did the piece of gum cross the road?
“I don’t know.”
“Because it was stuck to the chicken’s foot!”
“That’s good Leonardo, but I’m still bored.”
“Okay, it’s not because the joke isn’t funny but you’re tired of your upholstery color.”
There was silence in the room, then Carlotta said “I think you’re right…I have been sitting in this room for years, in the same outfit!” I need to go shopping, life is too short to wear boring clothes!” And so, Carlotta went shopping, and bought three new outfits, one in gray, one in white and one in tan. That afternoon Carlotta moved a little closer to Leonardo and with a big happy smile said; “Thank you Leonardo, we know money can’t buy happiness – that’s what shopping’s for.”
