A “For Sale” ad posted on the wall near the entrance of a local supermarket–except it wasn’t real. It was in my dream early this morning.
The star of my dream was Emily, a character in Haverty’s furniture commercials. Emily and Ned are newlyweds. Somehow, they miraculously raised a family in a very short time frame.
My conversation with Emily started this way. “The Green Mountains–are you familiar with them?”
“No–I’ve never heard of the Green Mountains,” Emily answered.
“They’re in Vermont, I replied–dropping a hint. “Sorry, doesn’t ring a bell.”
“Haven’t you heard of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys during the Revolutionary War?” I asked–getting frustrated.
Emily didn’t have an answer–appeared bored with my line of questioning.
“You surely have heard of Ethan Allen furniture–haven’t you?”
“Well–yes I have,” Emily answered. Ned, who had been quiet up to this point–nodded in agreement.
“It’s named after the same guy,” I answered–breathed a sigh of relief.
Back to the real question–“Why are you selling your blog?” I asked, somewhat puzzled.
“Ok–I just don’t need it anymore. It’s cluttering up the house. I’m much too busy these days,” Emily answered.
I liked Emily. Once she made up her mind–that was the way things were going to be.
What in the world was “Smile School?” It was too late to ask.
