Day 425 - Hello From Pretzel Maven - Guest Blogger!
Hi, it's Anne AKA Scott's sister AKA pretzel maven. As Scott explained in his prior blog entry, I'm in LA for an elongated visit. The current status of the economy has made my pretzel empire suffer (guess people don't want to pay $3.00 for a piece of fried dough) and my day job as a freelance writer isn't really pulling the bucks in either. To make matters even worse, my night gig as a high-class hooker has also suffered from the recession as my regulars have opted to put food on the table for their children instead of using my services. Let's hope President Obama can help our country's weary state.
Now time for a little twinchikawa story:
Today while making a trip to the grocery store, people stopped my brother and I in the aisles to comment on how cute Emma and Andrew are. Blah blah yes they are twins blah blah no they were never conjoined blah blah blah blah no, just because we are Asian doesn't mean we feed them with little chopsticks. Somewhere in my meandering thoughts, I realized that these people probably thought I was Emma and Andrew's mom and I am Scott's wife. AHH! EW!!! GROSS!!! I felt compelled to interrupt them and explain: I AM HIS SISTER. NOT HIS WIFE. I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN HIM NAKED! Lucky for everyone, I didn't make a scene, because the candy aisle and the giant chocolate turkey on sale distracted me. Gobble-gobble delicious!
Anywho, I foresaw my days here in California as productive and relaxing. I even had grandiose plans of starting to write a book with all this free time! However, now two little energy-sucking babies occupy the daylight hours. Yes, they are cute and related to me, but when their playtime gets in the way with my daily dose of Oprah, I really have to put my foot down!
