She was walking through the local Home Depot store when she was approached by a man with a camera crew. The fellow indicated that he was looking for someone in need of a backyard makeover. Would she be interested. He told her it was free. So, she agreed.
They met outside the store and he followed her back to her place. With his crew, they went into the backyard. They looked around and asked her what she wanted to do. She told them, “I want something magical.”
They brought in the design and got to work. The centerpiece was a magical wishing well. And they brought one in and installed it in her back yard, surrounding it with geraniums. The rest of the yard was rather plain, just being crushed granite. “Well, this was free,” she thought.
After the team left she went back into the yard, and tossed a coin into her magical wishing well. The coin clinked against the side of the well and in an instant the well disintegrated into a pile of rubble. It was just another Home Depot item after all, and in the rubble was a small white label that read “Made in China.”
