One trick is to tell them stories that don’t go anywhere, like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them! Give me five bees for a quarter, you’d say! Now, where were we? Oh yes, the important thing was, that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time!

It’s not always clear whether you’re in a situation where you should cut your losses or you should persevere. There are lots of stories of people who stuck it out and won big, but just as many stories of people who lost everything by staying on a sinking ship.
