In 24 hours we'll know whether the April 12 screening will be cancelled. We're within twenty tickets of our break-even goal so our fingers are crossed and we're calling friends, family and even enemies ;) Heck, we might even be calling complete strangers picked randomly out of the phone book!
"Hi! This is Jennifer at Ghost Sniffers. Would you like--"
Hm... they hung up. I'll try again.
"Yo! You want to attend the Ghost Sniffers screening for just $6.25?"
"You'll pay me $6.25 to go to the movies?"
"Err... well, I was hoping you'd pay the $6.25 to help pay for the theater space."
"I don't believe in sniffing."
Okay. One more call then...
"Who is this?"
"Uh, Jennifer at Ghost Sniffers."
"What do you want?"
"I have twenty half price tickets to the last big screen showing of Ghost Sniffers, Episodes 1 through 6. Would you like to buy one for about the price of a latte?"
"I can't live without my latte."
"Yeah, I often can't either. But this is a really good cause."
"When is it?"
"This Thursday night."
"I clean my stove on Thursdays."
"Oh. I understand. ... Wait! What if I come clean your stove?!"
"Fine. But I only want one ticket."
Whew! Now we only have to sell nineteen more tickets! Hm... I wonder how you clean a stove. Will Windex do the trick? ;)
