My Daughter Discovers Capitalism

So R* asked me the other day how I earned money when I was a boy. I proceeded to explain about recycling bottles, selling berries and doing a paper route all for the sake of some spending money. I told her about selling girl guide cookies and that being a cute little girl, she could sell anything. Something clicked.

Today she hounded Jenny to help her make chocolate chip cookies until twenty were baked and sure enough she went and sold them! Sold 10 to one neighbour, 4 to another and 5 to yet another. At 10p a cookie (biscuits in England) she made herself £1.90. Didn't have the heart to factor in cost of ingredients and no I don't know what happened to the last cookie but I can make a good guess!
