|More things we like at Wegmans|
This is an accidental -- and geeky -- hobby, and we often laugh about snapping photos in restaurants and writing about crazy fruit. You wonder sometimes if anyone reads the posts.
But Monday, we were in the new Columbia Wegmans. It was my wife's first visit, and our first stop was the bakery. We were standing by the pretzel rolls, and two women walked next to us. One pointed out the rolls to her friend. We were about to take two, and Mrs. HowChow said to the women that the rolls were good.
"I read about the pretzel rolls on HowChow," one woman said. We hesitated. We'd overheard people discuss the blog before. But no one had quoted us to us before. We didn't know what to do. Then, the woman turned right to my wife.
"Mrs. HowChow really likes them," she said. We froze. Mrs. HowChow really froze. I started to laugh, and I had to turn and walk a bit. Everyone smiled, and the other women walked on.
We wish that we had outed ourselves. We should have said, "We're the HowChows." It would have been hilarious for everyone. But that was a novel moment, and it's not like we hold ourselves out as food experts in our off-screen lives. And then the moment was gone, and we were chuckling our way through the deli section.
Thank you for reading HowChow. We don't take this very seriously, but we appreciate that the blog does something real. We love reading comments that people discovered something delicious here -- great bread, gas station tacos, Korean barbecue . . . So go grab those pretzel rolls.
