We're kindof a big deal
So in case you missed both the morning and evening WCCO news....Robyn and I are famous. Well maybe just Robyn. We went to a wedding dress sample sale this past weekend to take a look at options for her, and lo and behold, she found a dress. Its beautiful and perfect! While we were waiting to pay I spotted a newscaster and told him that my sister really wanted to be on TV (in reality, I really wanted to be on TV). So he obliged and interviewed her about the experience. I was certain the piece would be cut, after all, we are in the midst of an economic meltdown, weeks away from what will likely be the most important election of our lifetimes and encountering two wars - really, are they going to put our clip about a wedding dress sample sale on the news?! Oh yea, they did. Clearly this was newsworthy. Clearly. But it was shot from a very bad angle, my nose looked large and in charge. I was not pleased.
So we found a dress for Robyn, and, as my mom says...it all evens out. I went to every single store in town, spent hours trying on hundreds of dresses, found one that I loved and cost a pretty penny (though I did negotiate a deal on it). Robyn, went to a sample sale on a Saturday morning and walked away with her dress.
Have I mentioned that my sister and I are complete opposites?! Have I also mentioned that my nose looked HUGE on TV? Seriously, huge. It was not a good nose angle.
