RUSH: I want to show you a tweet that we got at Two If By Tea and the Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. We got Facebook, Twitter, websites, we’re everywhere. I mentioned to you yesterday that we had all of these entries. We’d asked for the best entry.
We wanted to send a bunch of copies of Rush Revere and American literary classics to a school. We asked people submit entries telling us why their school was the best. And we were unable to pick one because they were all so good. So what we did, we’re just gonna send copies of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims and other American classics like Mark Twain and so forth to all of the schools represented by people who entered. And we got this tweet, and I just have to show you this, ’cause this is a tweet sent by a young man who was happy to find out that his school was going to receive Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. He had his Ted-Tea Bear there.
Can you read that? I’ve got it positioned hopefully on the screen. It’s just as cute as it can be. And if you woulda told me that I’d be getting tweets from little crumb crunchers like this all happy over what I’m doing, I woulda thought you needed to be committed. But it’s happening because of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, and I had to share this little tweet with you because what it says, if you couldn’t read it: “Ted-Tea Bear and his pal just found out their school will get copies of your book.” Obviously his mom had taken the picture and sent us the tweet. This is amazing stuff that’s happening with this book and kids and families. It’s something I just wanted to share with you.
RUSH: Ramsey, Shelbyville, Kentucky. Great to have you on the program. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, I’m so excited to talk to you today.
RUSH: Well, thank you. It’s great to have you here.
CALLER: Listen, I’m really, really mad at you.
CALLER: Because my husband’s Christmas list was socks and a Shop-Vac and I thought I would blow it out of the water this year by ordering him some tea. And I thought with free shipping surely it will take a week to get here. So the one day, one day, Rush, that I’m out of the house, your package is delivered, and my husband got it.
CALLER: And he saw “Plane Ol’ Tea” on the box, and he knew. (laughing)
RUSH: Oh, no.
CALLER: It was awful.
RUSH: So we got it to you too quickly.
CALLER: You did. It was less than 48 hours.
RUSH: Well, that’s what we do.
CALLER: It was awesome. We had to open the box and try some tea, and it was amazing.
RUSH: Well, it’s probably gone now, right?
CALLER: Well, we’re saving some so that when my libbie com mother gets here for Christmas —
RUSH: Well, you know what, since we goofed up, since we goofed up and got it to you too soon —
CALLER: You did.
RUSH: — we’re gonna send you some more. So just hang on.
CALLER: (gasps) Oh!
RUSH: Mr. Snerdley will pick up the phone, get the favor you want and your address, and we’ll get some more out to you so that at least we can make up for our super fast shipping and having got it to you too soon. It’s Ramsey in Shelbyville, Kentucky.
