Mister picks up a pile of noodles from his tray and hands them to me. I guess he’s done with that. He hasn’t eaten much, so I pull out the big guns.
“Do you want some apple,” I ask him, “with peanut butter?”
“Peanut butter. Peanut butter,” he repeats. The way he says it sounds like he’s already eating some.
I slather an apple slice with just a thin coating of the brown goo.
“Here you go.” I hand the slice to him.
“Peanut butter!” He cries. He hands it back to me.
“There is some on there,” I tell him. “See?”
“Peanut butter!” He’s more insistent.
I add more peanut butter to the slice and hand it back.
“Mmmmm,” he says. “Peanut butter.”
My best attempts to “sell” the apple slice without a lot of peanut butter failed. He had to see the sticky stuff on his apple slice to know it was there. Then I had to clean it out of between his fingers, under his chin, and in his hair.
What are the best attempts you’ve seen to market a book?
