Dave decided to set up a lemonade stand. He had seen other kids in the neighborhood do it. It didn't seem that complicated. By the time he had made the signs and lemonade and brought it all out, the boy from across the street was sitting at his lemonade stand. The boy's name was Mike. Mike glared at Dave as he sat at his stand. Dave got an idea. A while later, he came out with a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Mike stormed into his house. Later he came out with a plate of huge chocolate brownies. Dave crossed his arms, sneered, and went into his house. He came back with a tray of mini sandwiches. A family walking down the street stopped at Dave's stand. They bought two sandwiches and three glasses of lemonade. Then they walked across the street and bought two brownies from Mike's stand. After they left, Mike carried his brownies over to Dave's stand. He put them down and said, "Let's just combine." Dave smiled and motioned for him to sit down. He picked up one of his own sandwiches and took a bite.
