Rattus & Tea Rat's Witsend Cottage
by Anita Rivera©
Rattus: What did you do this week?
Tea Rat: Well after I worked selling some of my tea to make a living, I read, wrote poetry, did some gardening, did volunteer work, got together with friends, and went on walks.
Rattus: Sounds nice.
Tea Rat: I also met this rich person. He told me that I was wasting my time and that I should take my little tea business and turn it into a global enterprise.
Tea Rat: Because then I could expand and open up tea shops everywhere.
Tea Rat: Then I could beat my competitors by cutting out the tea growers and have my own tea farms, and manufacturing plants, and distribution centers, and franchise stores and go straight to tea consumers myself.
Tea Rat: Because then I could offer an IPO and the stock proceeds will make me rich beyond my wildest dreams.
Tea Rat: Because then I can retire.
Tea Rat: Because then I can read, write poetry, do some gardening, do volunteer work, get together with friends, and go on walks.
