So I'm on the Metro this morning on my way to work, merrily making my way through the Express. (For those of you not from D.C., the Express is a free newspaper published by the Washington Post that distills the day's news down to the highest highlights.) Anyway, I'm flipping through the paper and I pause on the "Blog Log," which is where they post quotes they've pulled from bloggers about (mostly) what's going on in the pop culture world.
I notice that there's something about the Post's Peeps diorama contest. I read that the blogger doesn't "know how people come up with this stuff, but [she's] so glad they do." "Wow," I think to myself, "that sounds eerily similar to what I wrote yesterday." Then I do a double-take and am stunned to see that it IS what I wrote yesterday.
That's right, the Post apparently enjoyed my coverage of the contest. I was so surprised that I started laughing out loud on the Metro.
The real irony here is that I rarely pick up the Express when I take the Metro because I get the Post at home. And this morning, I was this close [fingers held together] to taking a cab to work because I was running late. If I'd done either this morning, I would have missed it. Looks like the stars aligned!
I'm definitely keeping a copy for my scrapbook!
