Impressions

She had been tapping her feet loudly in the workshop.
The customer was expected to arrive any minute.
She looked at the large clock on the wall.
A loud knock was succeeded by a few more.
He had arrived right on time.
She explained the intricacies in and significance of each of the sculptures she had made.
The customer walked with an air of disinterest.
She did not let her frustration reveal itself.
She pretended to be patient in the hope that the customer would, at the end of the tour, purchase at least one of her impressions.
He didn’t.
The customer had left the workshop unimpressed.
She was upset.
Later that night, she decided to bind more clay.
Sculpting was a second nature to her.
And so, she learnt the hard way – She knew how to Impress, but not how to make a good Impression.
