Xan Middents: Celebrity Spokesmodel

Given that we finally had decent weather in which to take an afternoon walk, Xan and I went out to fabulous downtown Takoma Park. I thought that perhaps we didn't have enough new pictures of the cutest little guy on the planet to send to the grandparents, so I whipped the camera out and took a couple of pictures, including this one:

Personally, I was pretty impressed with this one: it hasn't been retouched at all. We then went to CVS to print the pictures. The person at the counter told us it would only take about 10-15 minutes, so I decided to wander around the store.

When I got back, he handed me the pictures and then said, "Would you mind if I used one of your pictures as a sample photograph?"


"As one of the sample photographs."

"Oh! Which one?"

But I already knew which one he was talking about. And so, my son is now, at the ripe age of five months, shilling for CVS as Mr. 5x7 at the Takoma Park CVS. Isn't that hysterical? For our troubles, I got a free 5x7 enlargement of my own with a frame to match. Naturally, that will appear on my desk when I go in tomorrow.

Of course, Vega and I are both a little ticked off that he didn't choose this one. What an ego-deflator. (Despite what Russell says, "Hot" I am not.)

I think the one of you and Vega is adorable. (So is the one of Xan, of course, but the scrabble tiles cracked my shit up).
