“Sarah, we need to talk.”

“I know,” Sarah lamented, “I know what you’re going to say.”

“We just can’t afford to keep the shop open any longer. With the winters warming, no one is buying wool hats.”

“I know. You’re right. We can’t afford this storefront any longer, but maybe we could try eCommerce. I hear that some of the Nordic regions still have a season of frosting.”

“We could try that. I’ll set up the website and settle our lease with the landlord to the end of the month.”

“Thanks Josh. I miss winter.”

“Me too, Sarah. Me too.”
