i have been accused by my good friend gwyneth paltrow of not posting frequently enough. who knew i was in such demand. so, gwynnie, this is for you:
i sauntered into planet smoothie the other day for a last mango smoothie and was greeted by the planet smoothie guy who had an accent unlike anything i've ever heard in real life. i truly thought he was acting. it was like the fakest, worst french accent ever. he said "HELL-o, ma-DAM, and HOW are YOU?" loud enough to be heard in paris. i order my smoothie and wait around while he blends together the mangos, bananas, peaches and sorbet and when he hands me the smoothie he says "do YOU like to SCOOBA?". to which i reply "SCOOBA? as in scuba diving?" and he says "why YES. in my home of TRINIDAD i was a SCOOBA instructor." i said i'd never been before. he said it was fun.
i wanted to get a smoothie today but i couldn't muster up the energy for the interaction with the SCOOBA guy. oh well.
