Yesterday I was driving down State Street near where I live in Orem, Utah, eating my lunch, and I was flagged down by the car next to me. Passenger side dude waving, honking, and yelling. I rolled down my window, and the guy yelled, “Hey, GreenSmoothieGirl! Remember me? I was in the class you did for triathletes last month! I got a BlendTec on your site, and I bought your book, and so did my boss [pointing at the guy driving the car].”
I was a little startled and may not have thanked him adequately for support of my site. (My mouth was full of food. Plus, you know, the DRIVING.)
Fortunately, I got another chance to correspond with him better, because I got home and got this email from him:
“I just passed you and lost a major bet! I bet the guy next to me that you would be drinking a green smoothie! When I got next to your car the look on my face was only because I lost money! To my disgust I find you (after leaving GOOD EARTH and talking about you) driving around eating whole foods! YIPES! Were you having a shake and fries and I couldn’t see them below? Just kidding.”
For the record (due to the apparent fascination with what I eat), I had just left Good Earth, myself, and was eating a vegetarian quesadilla I got there (black beans, corn, jicama) in a whole-wheat tortilla, with a side of fruit. YUM.
With his email, he sent this cute photo of his kids with their green smoothie mustaches!
