So – my super gorgeous friend, Christina, asked me and her super gorgeous friend, Amanda, to join her in having a photo taken for Charleston City Paper‘s yearly bar guide, Swig. Charleston.loves.this.girl. LOVES!
The shoot (oh, how model-y!) was at the W XYZ Bar at Aloft Hotel in North Charleston. It was quite humorous and awkward (yuh mean – have this drink, but don’t really drink it?), but amusing for sure.
Well, Swig came out as an insert in the City Paper yesterday. I didn’t know until I was already home from work, so I looked it up online.
And this is what I saw.
No, for reals, that’s totally me.
You mix a short, curvy, dark & curly-haired broad in with 2 blonde bombshells and you get a lonely ant in the background. A lonely thirsty, thirsty ant.
When I told my Dad about my unfortunate debut, he said, “well, you’re always a star in our eyes!” Aww – thanks, Dad! What’d the husband say when he saw the pic? “Oh look – you’re an extra!” Supportive babe. Really, thanks!
Today, I saw the picture on Christina’s Facebook that’s in the actual City Paper (I still haven’t gotten my hands on one). And now, I feel a little redeemed. [At least I’m not alone at the bar in this one.]
Well from palm trees to homeownership to baby making to blogging – Charleston has definitely brought out the “why not” in me! I always cherish the opportunity to have new and different experiences – so thanks for inviting me, Christina!
CHARLESTON – This time I may be just sneaking into your background. But before you know it, I’ll be all up in your grill!!!
p.s. I promise I’m not looking for pity comments about my stature or hair color. I realize that I am one blessed b-to-the-itch.
