One a Day

In 1974, I hired on detailing cars at a used car lot. Morris, a salesman, was the only African American there. All day he stood by the glass door and watched the lot. Anyone pulled in to kick some tires, Morris went on out. Morris outsold the other salesmen and they hated him for it. I ask Morris how he did it. “I aim to sell one a day. Man can get by on one a day.” I quit that job and bought a ‘58 Dodge from Morris. Dodge’s long gone but Morris’s “One a day” is still with me.
