Feng-Shui’d!

Barbara*, 1939-

“Everything on that corner does not block energy, or bounces it back, or something!”

I’ll tell you a secret*, but do not tell anyone about this location, it may disappear my place. The corner of Elm St. and Shaler Lane used to be ordinary, all the other buildings are at a right angle. But one day they started working there, and a brand new corner emerged.

They rounded that corner, even the faceted glass is round now! That must have been excessively expensive to build it that way. It has since been my most successful corner. At first, I thought it was a coincidence, but no. You do make money on that corner! It’s just what that Chinese lady said, ‘They feng-shui’d the corner!’ It was the most boring looking corner, and I’m just raking it in. Everything on that corner does not block energy, or bounces it back, or something!
