I asked my son Jeremy to write a guest blog post, and he said no, so I will report the story he told.
For more than a year, his morning commute passed the construction site of an in-progress Wa-Wa store. For those unfamiliar with Wa-Wa, it is a popular chain of stores that sell sandwiches and snacks and plenty of other stuff.
Jeremy had been informing me of its status on a regular basis. He scheduled a coffee date with a colleague when opening day was announced.
(I should mention here that Jeremy vowed to and did eat in the top 100 chain restaurants in the U.S. a few years ago.)
In addition to Jeremy and his colleague, the Wa-Wa mascot, Wally Goose was there. An excited crowd enjoyed free coffee.
At the 9:00 ribbon-cutting ceremony, the new store team was introduced with much excitement.
This is the kid that had a clementine-eating contest for his 50th birthday celebration.
What will he be up to next?
