All of us girls went Christmas shopping last Saturday. We had a really great time. The weather, although rainy, was only in the 40's. We went all over the mall and several other stores. William-Sonoma was awesome. I love that store.
We got Starbuck's and I burned my tongue on my white chocolate mocha espresso.
I got this great pair of shoes at another store, I was really excited about them! I really like pretty shoes.
So to get to the point of my post.
After the mall we headed for another store. Its my favorite grocery store, Whole Foods. I was taking more pictures to go along with this post when one of the employees came up to me.
"Could I ask what your taking pictures for?"
Oh. no. please don't say..
"oh, I was just taking pictures for my blog."
"Oh really? I'm sorry but you can't really do that. You see, everything here is trademarked. I'm sorry about that..."
oh swell. I really want to crawl under my bed right now.
"Oh, I understand. I'm sorry. :)"
I don't recall what else I said but I do remember letting her know I was profusely sorry. I'm a rule follower so I felt really out of line.
Lydia was standing beside me wiping her forehead thinking how great it was that I happened to be taking the pictures for once and not her.
The lady was nice though. She later came back over to me and asked me what kind of blog I had.
"Do you write a food blog?"
"Well not really, its really just whatever is going on."
"Do you write about food? I could talk to my marketing manager and we could set up some shots."
"Oh thanks but that's really okay. :)" *smile*
I thought is was really nice of her to ask. If she only knew I was just a sixteen year old who had this little blog among the millions of others in cyber space. I'm not exactly Pioneer Woman you know!:)
maybe I ought to have said,
I write a column in Gourmet magazine. I was just taking a few shots to go along with the article I'm writing about your amazing store.
yeah, I'm from Food Network and we were wanting to feature the store in a special about organic and all natural food.
But then again she might not have believed me. :P
You might remember me saying that one of my favorite quotes is "A person with inner dignity is never embarrassed."
oh yeah. whatever.
I just need to get some more inner dignity I guess.
