Uncle Sal and the Elevated Entrepreneurs (Episode 148)

Inside the Karate Chophouse, Uncle Sal and Alice sat across from Giacomo and his new girlfriend Desiree. Desiree was wearing an iridescent gold top that was cut so low that Alice whispered to Uncle Sal when they sat down, "I think I can see her bellybutton." Uncle Sal had just speared the orange slice at the bottom of his Mai Tai when two men probably at least six-feet-five walked in.

"Are those guys basketball players?" Alice asked.

Giacomo put his Yorkshire pudding back on his plate and turned to look. "Oh, those are the Wiesen brothers, Will and Walt."

Uncle Sal narrowed his eyes. "Why does that sound so familiar?"

Giacomo said, "They are going to open that formalwear shop for tall men: Tall Tails. You can see how they might have gotten the idea. I mean, just look at those guys. It can't be easy for them to find something to wear when they are groomsmen or have to go to some formal event. So they got the idea to open a shop for people like them. Of course, the trouble with starting a business is trying to figure out where the money will come from. They were having a hard time getting investors until Stan Flimterschmidt heard their idea."

Desiree played with the locket on her necklace and said, "Who's that?"

"He's this motivational speaker. He's probably six-feet-nine and he gives all these seminars. Politicians especially love his spiel, so he goes to a lot of formal dinners. And when he heard that someone wanted to open a formalwear store for tall men, he got just as excited as he does when he is trying to motivate people. Especially when he heard they wanted to open the store right here in town. He got behind the project as the principal investor and the number one fan of the whole deal."

Uncle Sal sopped up some gravy with a biscuit and said, "Well, it certainly sounds like he's the Stan for tall Wiesens."
