Me: So it’s worth the effort to handle these gems correctly, correct?

Rusty: Darn straight. Add in rainiers for color and extra variety. I take special care of the cherries, as I see the results: Increased sales, profits, customer draw — all good for the produce department.

Me: Was it Neil Diamond who sang, “She got the way to move me, Cherry?”

Rusty: Last warning on the singing, bub. Later. Now, I have cherries to stock.
