Grocery Store Chivalry

This afternoon I ran to the grocery store to get more cookie dough for a fruit pizza (1 tube of dough is enough for a mini-pizza, a BIG pizza takes 3 tubes).  As I was walking up to the front door I noticed a man several steps behind me.  He shouted, "Let me get the door for you, Miss!"  I thought, "Wow!  A guy (other than my dad) making an extra effort to get the door for me?  Nice!"  And then I realized that it was an automatic door.  He was being funny.  Ha.

Gum Contribution

I just got home from a trip to Seattle.  Naturally I visited Pike Place Market.  Loved it.  Stopped at the original Starbucks, Pike Place Chowder, Beecher's Cheese, sampled chocolate linguine, and some new variety of apple.  (Whoa, I guess I ate a lot!)  Aaaand...  I found the gum wall!  Half of an alley covered in multiple layers of brilliantly colored candy!  Now that I'm home I realized something awful about it.  I didn't make a contribution!  There was a candy store right around the corner and I didn't take two minutes to buy a piece of gum and stick it on the wall.  Argh!  Why didn't I do it?!  (Possibly because it was 2 degrees, snowing, and my nose was starting to drip)  So... if anyone happens to be at the gum wall anytime soon, would you please stick a piece of blue gum on the wall for me and take a picture of it?  I'd be extremely grateful.
