What Happened At The Giant...


...grocery store.

"Your devoted fans want to know what happened at the Giant on Saturday".

The reason Anonymous said that is because I said...

…”If all you want to do is get laid, save your match.com money and simply wear that rig to the grocery store. That would be the Giant grocery store in Old Town Alexandria…4:15 pm tomorrow afternoon. I’ll have my coon skin cap on”.

And then MegTown over at PigTown Design emailed me this article from the Washington Post. Kinda sums it up I reckon.

I actually laughed out loud at this. NAY--I cackled. That is some fine reporting there on the part of the Post.

ADG - You can imagine how astonished I was that my quotes - very complimentary, mind you - were not included in the Post article.

I was shopping in Old Town this past Saturday afternoon at Scarlet Fox and couldn’t figure out how in the world I could sneak away from my date (I knew I couldn’t drag him along) and hightail it over to the Giant. . .but I did indeed witness the mobs traveling towards the Giant and was disappointed that I was not amongst them.

(I was wearing patch-gingham on Saturday and not something be-fringed so I guess you wouldn’t have noticed me.)

The only thing that saved me from being there is that you don't live in Houston.

Who has a link to the online version of the story? I can't find it online!

NCJack said...

On the jump page: "Police questioned a suspicious man in a coon skin cap, but he was released as he obviously knew nothing"

AnonymousCan'tFindItOnline...........I think it is a remastered actual WashPost article, cleverly constructed with text and photo op by our darling 'Second Hand Piggie'. ; - }

If you hadn't before, you have officially arrived now. Period. Hire bodyguards. Stat. xoxo

Anon @9:35, not all of the stories in the paper show up on line and vice versa.

Good thing Anon 9:35 chose to remain anonymous.

Too much....you should start thinking about qutiing the day job!

Paul said...

I'm howling with laughter! --- that was GREAT!

TWJ said...

I couldn't figure out why the girls at casa TWJ were gone all day Saturday. They said something about going shopping. Now this explains why there are GIANT paper grocery shopping bags in the recycling bin. I guess it also explains the long faces when they got home that evening.

Well played, ADG and MegTown@PigTown, particularly "ADG's call answeres prayers"

This Friend of Maxminimus was slain in the aisles during the last entry due to the unexpected and apposite references to Atom Ant and the Frito Bandito

I choose my favourite blogs very carefully

Too funny! Were the riot police called out? Tear gas used?

Anon 9:35 - The Washington Post website seems to be having some techical difficulties. Maybe that's why the full article is not available online.

Patsy said...

Well done, Meg!!! That is just too funny.

In The Littoral said...

You definitely out did your self. I laughed out loud. Dave

ADG said...

K.S. Anthony…yep that Meg is a real sleuth.

LimeGreeOne…the reporters were bound and determined to portray me as a scalawag so I’m not surprised that your comments weren’t included. Plus, I’m scared of your boyfriend. And you weren’t wearing patch-gingham. I’ve outlawed it in OTA.

BayArea…now let’s not go overboard. Meg is reasonably funny. That’s it.

Suburban ….you were famous before this.

Wonder Of It Al….I want a pair of those lime green ass paisley shorts you are sportin’ on your blog.

AnonymousHouston…The OTA Giant is five minutes from National Airport. NO excuse for not being there.

NC Cracker-Jack…the other reason they released me is ‘cause I scared ‘em.

Preppy 101...naaahhhh I like getting accosted. No body guards for me.

Memphis88 …I’m not gonna tell you again to send me those damn Gucci loafers that make you look like an elf.

Main Liner...HELL of a boat on your blog page. I never had a day job.

PaulHowler….How much did that tooth cost you?

TWJ ...Your gals took one look at me and laughed.

Barima ...Compliments from you are always sublime.

SouthernProletariat...The Riot Police were NOT called out. However, I had my cousin
AllieVonNightStick deputized and appointed as Chief of the Butt Police. Anyone exceeding the Caliper/Weight Ratio was turned away at once.

Patsy...it was funny but come on…not too funny!

Littoral In The … yep. It was a stone groove.

Paul said...

2 @ $1027.00 Dentist is sportin around in a new BMW!

Memphis88 said...

Haha, well the problem is that they were a gift from my parents and when they heard I might be getting rid of them they weren't all that happy. My interest and the amount of money I spend on clothes is sort of lost on them so the price of the guccis shocked them. You can see why they might not want me to part with them. However, I don't wear them anymore so if I do ever get rid of them then you will certainly be the recipient.

ilovelimegreen said...

Now what, ADG, do you have against patch-gingham to outlaw it in Old Town; I've yet to see it worn by the masses...and is patch-chambray outlawed too? (You need to be scared of the boyfriend's ferocious beagle, not him.)

Anonymous said...

No one snapped an iPhone pic of ADG sporting the Coon Chapeau? What was he wearing? What attends a coon skin cap in dead of summer? Who noted the rousers, shorts, shirtage, shoes, PEDICURE for kryssake? This would have been classic Maxminimus! Where are your heads you blogged out failed paparazzi. Feh!

Young Fogey said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for changing the colors of your blog! There is nothing harder on the eyes than white text on a black background.

Oh, and it was a funny post, too.

ADG said...

Fogey...man...I'd have changed it a long time ago but nobody ever told me how bad it was. Yesterday someone gave me precise feedback on why it sucked and in fifteen minutes it was changed.

AnonymousChapeau...I was wearing a purple velvet cowboy hat, lime green cowboy boots with flashing blacklights in each heel,and a zebra print thong in orange. That's how I slipped by the cameras.

LimeGreen...I eat Beagles.

Memphis...give me your mama's phone number and I'll axk her if I can have your shoes.

Paul...never an inexpensive endeavour.

Re: background colour change - your readership is way too polite to criticize your judgements regarding colour selection.

Nelle Somerville said...

These posts all make me so happy. I was just in OTA last week for an event at Restaurant Eve, would have loved to have run into you at the Giant as well. But don't you shop a the Social Safeway ADG? Ah miss GTown so much. Meg, we have to meet in Baltimore!!! xoxo @baltiville

Anonymous said...

BOONES FARM????? Really? ADG i might be a little disappointed in you, having it and not sharing. :)

Summer is a Verb said...

Pure GEEENIOUSSS Meg! And, prob not too far off the mark of what would actually happen. But of course, in the real version it would be an Hermes night stick...XXOO
