A New Business Idea

Last night I was sitting under a coconut tree enjoying the warm sun. I was remarking about how bright the sunshine was coming off the water when suddenly it was all interrupted by a loud, monotone yell.

I glance at the clock, its 2:32 AM.

What the hell? “Gigi, are you okay?”

“Whoa, I’ve got to pee!”

“What are you screaming for honey?”

“I was dreaming that I was in a public stall peeing and this big woman was forcing her way in. I screamed for help.”

In other news…I was bantering with Ali by email and listening to WSTX Internet Radio yesterday afternoon when I heard an ad for the St Croix motor club. They talked about how they offered the tow service, tire repair and other services of say, the AAA motor club.

It struck me funny when I thought about it. This is a rather small island. Chances are you will be close enough to any help by walking a few miles from you car. If you are not close enough then don’t expect to have a cell signal to call for help. Or, if you sit there long enough someone you know will recognize you and ask you if you need help.

Me thinks the St Croix Motor club is a racket. I may get an old pickup truck, a set of jumper cables, a gallon or gas and diesel, a lug wrench, a jack and open Reggae Reggie’s Motor Club. I could get say 500 members at $79 a year, throw a beach chair in the back of the truck and wait for the calls for help while working on a nice tan.

You can also listen to Roger Morgan's talk show, "Free Speach", which was the subject of a Wall Street Journal article a few months back.

His web address is www.paradise935fm.com

It is aired weekday mornings from 9-noon and evenings from 6-9.

I listen most days, but sometimes the political situation down here "get me 'vex', yo' know".

Reg if you need someone to desgin some brochures and business cards for ya let me know! Of course I'd need to come to the island to do it.

mr zig said...

Hey - you might needs a whole design TEAM for those brochures and stuff - Perhaps you should send JayGray AND me to the island - and we can get started on the whole marketing campaign - I'll be ready to leave by the afternoon. :)

Reggie said...

Both of you guys bring your guitars so you can have a jam session at the Brew Pub on the boardwalk, while I lay back in the pickup planning business strategy.

Jay Gray said...

Zig is it ok if our booming marketing firm has an onsite hair dresser so my wife cna come too?! :)

Your bidness is growing Reggie. You're going to have to increase your number of members or start charging $149 a year or you guys are gonna run outta beer money.

Reggie said...

Yeah, the overhead is getting big fast. I may have to fire Zig or Jay out of the gate. Gosh, both either have a new child or one on the way. But, that's why I make the big money at Reggie's Reggae Wrecking Service. I'm paid to make these tough decisions.

Maybe I could expand to St John and St Thomas.

I like the "Reggie Raggae". I like that even better than Captain whiskers.

Reggie said...

That was Captain Stubble and his 1st Mate Scruffy.

Ali said...

Hey! Can I come? Don't you think any of the guys on the island would want a chick picking them up?
I mean, come on, you have to have a girl that can take some calls too.

mr zig said...

Fire us!? geesh! - Then who will translate for the Canadian tourists? - you NEED a canadian on board! :)

Jay Gray said...
