Alton Brown was signing books at my Coscto on Sunday.
Give a good look at each of the pictures that the nice man that AB brought with him took for me. Notice anything unusual?
Not my jiggly arm or crazy hair.
Or that my bra strap was starting to slide down my arm.
Or that Alton is shall we say, not on the tall side.
Or that it looks like I outweigh him.
The man, seriously, has no butt.
You ladies can thank me later.
Notice who is doing all the talking.
"My friend Becky in Atlanta says Hi!"
AB: "Tell Becky Hi!"
(as an aside, he does have some great looking forearms)
"My daughter-in-law only like avocados in your guacamole. She says thanks"
AB: "You mean she doesn't like them outside of guac?"
"No. It's weird I know because guac is like all avocado with just a little bit of other stuff thrown in but really who can know why one person likes something but not the main ingredient on it's own. Maybe, it's the texture. But we love her anyway"
(Notice glazed look. I'm pretty sure he was thinking; get this crazy woman away from me.)
Did I mention the veggie show I want Food Network to produce? NO!
Did I mention that he is the Bill Nye of food? NO!
Probably just as well. He must have already been truly afraid of me by then.
It could have been worse. I could have been the person immediately after the man that loves AB so much that he named his kid Alton. Yes, there was a 2 year old 3 people behind me named Alton. Whose father was wearing a t-shirt that had him and AB on it. Of course AB had never posed for it. It was photoshopped by his brother-in-law. That is how much this guy loves AB. How do I know all this? Well, he was only 3 people behind me and we did have 2 hours to kill. Standing behind him would have been SO much worse.
I do have to say that until that point I had a pretty productive day. I walked/ran 4.2 miles with Nessa, made veggie eggs benedict for breakfast, hard-boiled a dozen eggs and made sugar-spiced nuts all before I left at 11am. After I got home at 1:30? Nothing. I read the rest of the afternoon. I was truly lazy.
Hope your weekend went well.
