In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “FAQ.”

Now like all FAQ’s the real questions are not answered. How does the #1 Selling Indian Laurel actually do it’s work. Is it a his or her? How does one addrees a tree? Obviously this tree has lots of helpers–a chauffer, extra sales staff. I want to see this number 1 seller in action. Do you think if I called, they would tell me when this tree is working or lie about hours. Come on down, this tree is always there.
And then there are the difficulty of choosing. If there are thousands of olive trees and each tree is a work of art, how does one choose? Locally grown, is that like farm to table schemes. Caan I get olives from this work of art? So many choices, so little time. And the rains are coming.
