Booth vs. "Made"
Apparently there's a show on MTV called "Made" which takes teens and *makes* them in to their dream thing...
This afternoon at 4:30, they will be at OUR high school taking applications and doing interviews for an episode. I guess it takes about a month to make people over.
I've never seen the show, but according to their website, they turn the geek into a rapper, the clutzy girl into a figure skater, etc.
Both Diana and Mary want to try out for this (why not?), but our first booth sale for GS cookies will be at Wal-Mart today from 4:00 to 6:00. Typically, we can sell up to 100 boxes per booth on the first weekend of sales (altho the forecast is for rain, and it's so stinkin' early in the year, I'm not all that hopeful). However, we do sign up for our booth slots on a lottery basis, and I can't just dump the first weekend sales. This is the best booth time I got - We'd be left with tons of unsold cookies!
So my compromise is that Mary should go to the tryouts for Made and try to be there early. Once she's done, she can trade places with Diana at the booth sale. That way both girls get to try out, and both will do their sales.
We'll lure Mary into the plan with Taco Bell...
