Selling PB & J at Grateful Dead Show – Kelly Girl Book

My mantra this year is “Done is better than perfect!”

So keeping this spirit in mind, I woke up this morning with a burning desire to complete a chapter in my memoir “Kelly Girl.” Below are a couple paragraphs.

I’ve always been an entrepreneur. When I was nine years old, I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and sold them at the Grateful Dead shows. I would set up a table next to my dad who sold crystals outside the parking lot of the show. We didn’t have any money so we couldn’t afford to actually go inside the show. Sometimes we would get hooked up with some free tickets or something but for the most part we sat outside the parking lot and sold things to make money.

I remember going to Safeway and getting cheap Safeway Select sodas and those tiny little milk cartons. As an entrepreneur I came up with this gig where I would sell peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for only 50 cents. I made a cute little sign to attract customers who had the munchies. I would sell a PB & J and then wait until the stoner ate about half the sandwich and they were super thirsty. Then I would say, “Hey, you’re in luck because I have one milk carton left and it’s only $1.50. “

Please be gentle with your comments… I’m still working on my writing skills so I know it’s not perfect but at least I’ve started!
