At first we thought it was a small tar patching machine since it was parked in the road even though traffic was heavy and slow moving. We soon found out he was roasting peanuts in the machine and selling them. It was actually a good spot for sales – wouldn’t we all like to munch on warm, roasted peanuts while waiting in traffic.
A small sack of peanuts was $1 so we purchased and they were delicious. Plus, our new friend the peanut guy, was happy to pose for a photo after we made our transaction.
I think I could be a peanut vendor and socialize with the people while cooking delicious treats. I don’t think peanuts would sell as well in Minnesota or South Dakota. Beef jerky or soy nuts, maybe? Hmmm…maybe not.
