I AM A WIMP
Yes, I hate to admit it but I am a total wimp. Recently I was attending a happy hour (big surprise there) where one of the speakers was a man who worked in marketing for Darden Restaurants. Umm, do you know what Darden Restaurants is????? It is the parent company of Red Lobster, as well as Bahama Breeze, Smokey Bones and Olive Garden (it is ok we all make mistakes). I thought to myself, a converstation with this man may open many windows for me. Maybe I would be offered a job doing PR for Red Lobster or maybe he would have read the blog and thought, hmm before this thing gets so big maybe I should advertise on it and secure good rates now (whatever, we can all dream). Anyway, there I was glass of wine in hand staring at a man I so admire and I froze, I did not go over and say hello, did not tell him how I love his bisquits, did not tell him about the blog, nope I did nothing. Instead I talked to some girl and told her I liked her shirt. I am not a shy person so I have no idea why I was such a whimp. When I saw Donald Trump and Patrick Ewing at the Taj Mahal a few years ago I had no problem saying hello to them. Hmm, I just don't get it. Hopefully I will come across someone in the chain restaurant world again and I will not get so shy. Until then, I will keep on eating and keep on blogging.
