Sex Sells

“It’s odd,” Dwight said.

“What is?” Gregg asked.

“I put a post on the Nextdoor app advertising my business and I haven’t received any responses, not even one.”

“I didn’t know you started your own business,” Gregg said. “What is it?”

“I build and repair wood privacy fences,” Dwight said. “I even put an image on the ad showing the fence I built for my own house.” Dwight handed his smartphone to Gregg and said, “Here, take a look.”

“All due respect, dude,” Gregg said, “but you’re ad has no pizazz.”

“They’re wooden privacy fences,” Dwight said. “There ain’t a whole lot of pizazz going on with privacy fences.”

“My friend,” Gregg said, “sex sells. I’ll ask my wife to put on a skimpy bikini and to come over and pose seductively in front of your fence. If anyone can promote your business, that raven-haired beauty can.”

Dwight took a few photos of Gregg’s wife posing provocatively near the fence and posted the sexiest one on Nextdoor. Within a few hours he’d gotten dozens of inquiries. Thrilled, Dwight called Gregg. “You were right, buddy, sex does sell and now I’m basking in new fence projects.”

“See, I told you,” Gregg said, “so congratulations my friend. Bask away.”

      Um, I’d like to say yes, that’s what I meant. But unfortunately it was a rather interestingly (Freudian?) typo. Oops.
