My wife said to me yesterday that she was ashamed at all of the *lemonade stands* and kid *car washes* that she has zoomed past throughout her life.
I told I her that I felt the same and had just recently come to the same conclusion.
It would cost us essentially nothing to pay the fifty cents or two bucks for a Dixie cup-sized beverage or to have the lower 30 inches of our cars partially washed, but our incremental business might go a long ways towards encouraging future entrepreneurs.
This is precisely the type of *intellectual growth* thoughtful committed parents experience. Having the responsibility of children changes everything - far beyond just driving slower past playgrounds and whatnot. This is why *deferred adulthood* is such a human travesty.
Probably, everyone drives past these excited little peddlers....they get disillusioned....and end up in *marketing* or in Wall Street's *skim biz*!
From now on, I'm going to make sure to stop at almost every one.
