Last night Bossy and her husband and daughter went to their small town’s center for the annual Christmas Tree Sale, which benefits the Fire Station, and hello have you met Mayberry?
Bossy’s husband noticed that the tree prices haven’t budged since last year. Looking at the above sign, you’ll see that the 4′ Balsams were $25. Only they had no trees under 6′.
Next we have the 6′-8′ Balsam Firs at $40, the 6′-7′ Fraser Firs at $45, the
7-8′ Fraser Firs at $55, and the enormous trees for blah blah Bossy will never live in a house that big blah.
The Balsam Firs are more prickly than the Fraser firs, and Bossy’s family doesn’t like prickly. And at Bossy’s tree place, the Fraser firs are organic without preservatives and Bossy’s family likes organic!
But lookee there, if a 8′ Fraser Fir is $55, and a 8′ Balsam fir is $40, can you guess which type of tree Bossy and her family purchased yesterday?
Hint: send bandaids. And gas masks.
