Can I give you a high-five?


The cashier said to the woman in front of me, “If you spend $8 more dollars, you get a free turkey!”

The woman looked at me and woman behind me and said, “I don’t want to hold up the line!” We both yelled, “Get that free turkey!” The cashier ran for the turkey, the woman’s husband ran for $8 worth of pot pies and the woman behind me exhaled, “I’m just happy to have 5 minutes where I don’t have to do anything.”

After the mission was accomplished, I gave turkey-lady a high-five. Then the woman behind me wanted one. The cashier high-fived all of us.

So naturally, because of this, I’ve started high-fiving pretty much everybody. I think it’s a positive and contagious gesture – and heck, we all need a little encouragement sometimes, don’t we?

Please accept this virtual high-five, and if you’re so inclined, pass it on.

Oh yeah … if you need help writing copy that’s even better than a free turkey, I’m your gal. Happy 2017!

  1. OK. A little late to the game, but I LOVE THIS STORY. I’m loving your blog in general. Can we be best friends? And even if … you know … that doesn’t work for you, I’m hoping you’ll answer a pretty blunt question: Does this fun vibe help get fun clients? I’m working on getting copywriting gigs while looking for a job-with-insurance, so my website is fairly restrained. But I’m hoping to work with fun people. I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog.
