I can’t imagine what it takes to be a peanut seller, to sit on a large pile of bags of peanuts selling kilo after kilo of these excellent nuts. But this guy, day after day, never lost his luster when I would walk through the area of his market. He always smiled and offered a few to me and anyone else who ventured within earshot and his techniques worked well. One day I stood from a distance and counted off people who he attempted to engage with. Out of 42, 37 took a sample and 21 bought a bag full, including me after this unscientific poll.
