#48 - Local Celebrities

That whole 15 minutes of fame was a load of horseshit, at least in Pittsburgh. We don't become famous - we become local celebrities for 15 minutes.

#47 - Forgotten groceries

We picked up some lunch meat at our local Giant Eagle this afternoon, and as we were walking out a woman (it's Sunday so it goes without saying she was wearing a Steelers jersey) briskly walked by us calling out 'sir' to catch the attention of a gentleman who had forgotten a bag of groceries. The man said thank-you, took the bag, and we entered the cold.

I took this for granted today. It's a small gesture but one that should be acknowledged as grand not ignored as trivial.
