As they say, foam is where the art is…
Blog Guy, I need your business advice, quickly! I know this is gonna sound like one of those people who see the Virgin Mary’s face on a Ritz cracker or something, but…
I’m in Taiwan, and I got a latte at my hotel, and I swear I saw the image of the Dalai Lama IN THE FOAM ON TOP.
I want to sell this on eBay. I’ve stored it in my safe-deposit box at the front desk. How much should I ask for it?
Oh, maybe about $3.65. The Dalai Lama has been staying at the same hotel, and they’re producing a signature latte with his sculpture in foam on top. You’re not the only person who has one.
Oh crap! So do I still have a chance to sell it?
Sure. Like they say, “Better latte than never….”
