The husband works for a medical company in Pleasanton. (Lucky to have a job! Especially in this economy! Self just heard over the news that Hewlett Packard is laying off 27,000!). Every couple of weeks, it falls to him to bring do-nuts or bagels to the office. Today, he brought bagels.
Here were a couple of things that self found interesting about that:
- A few weeks earlier, The Economist ran an obituary of “Bagel King” Murray Lender.
- Self discovered that Noah’s Bagels opens at 5 a.m. The only reason she knows this is: that was how early the husband went over to get his order.
- Self also never knew that a big order gets packaged like this (Reminds her of a Chinese take-out carton, only 10x bigger. And with brown cardboard instead of white.)
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
