Recently I was preparing to pay for my one find at a yard sale, when another couple appeared onto the driveway. The husband asked the yard sale lady, “Do you have any croquet balls?”
She did not. I am not sure how common a question that is at yard sales. I do know that the National Croquet Center is located in my neck of the woods. So this could be asked more frequently here.
What ensued was a discussion about the inability to find only a few croquet balls without having to buy an entire croquet set. But it was the next turn in the conversation that really attracted my attention.
