Am I the only one who finds the process of accepting a morsel from one of the Costco Sample Ladies to be…slightly awkward?
Because they have this whole, like, schpeal. That they sort of just play on a loop. Without any noticeable punctuation or sentence breaks. And while I’m sure they’re fully accustomed to people walking away as they’re speaking, I kind of feel socially obligated to stand there and smile and nod until I’m sure I’ve heard the entire thing through.
(Except for this one time, a few years ago, when I got, like, carded by the sample lady. She told me I couldn’t have any trail mix unless my parents came over and said it was okay. As in: she thought I was seventeen. I was twenty-five. That one was awkward for everyone.)
Anyway, I’m the sucker who stands there and listens to the whole sales pitch and then, half the time, ends up walking away with something I totally hadn’t planned on buying.
Which is why I now have an institutional-sized box of veggie burgers in my freezer.
I don’t even really like veggie burgers. I mean, these ones are okay, but I had one for dinner tonight and was kind of thinking to myself that it would make a good once-in-a-while food. And now I have fifteen more of them. Help!
On an unrelated note, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out this super helpful blogger content flow chart over on Marie’s blog. Absolutely hysterical.
That’s all I’ve got today. Happy Monday, y’all!
