So I’ve been working on getting our cutting boards into the Williams-Sonoma catalog. For about 8 months now I have been a real pest and the answer is still no, but that’s ok. My dad keeps saying to “be a pest” and Mr. Know-it-All keeps saying “are you sure you’re not bothering them?” Two completly different opinions one is from an enterprenuer and the other from a UPS driver. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and being “absent” from the catalog makes me more “fond” of being in it!
I just hate, hate, hate to be one of those pests that keep asking and being told no while the person who is telling you no is really thinking “its never going to happen” and I really don’t want to be “that girl.” You know “that girl” that thinks her product is the BEST EVER, and keeps asking and asking to have it put in the store or what-ever. But the board is already in the STORE, and ONLINE, it just needs to be in the CATALOG TOO!!!! Oh please please, with a cherry on top!
So I have been asking this same buyer for the chance to put our product in the catalog until she got promoted recently. So now I have a new person to be a pest to. Lucky for her, she already told me she KNOWS about my requests to be in the catalog and she will keep me in mind for the future. Promising? Or, “Oh crap the pest is bothering me?”

So……today is Mr. Know-it-All’s birthday and he is doing the one thing he really wants to do (according to him), and that is (drum roll please), watching ESPN. While I am at work teaching 11 kids in the woodworking class and daydreaming about the wonderful hair appointment I am going to have tonight, he is watching ESPN. I cannot imagine how sports can be so invigorating and exciting but it is for about 85% of the population. I have pondered this question for over 10 years while I sit on the couch and try to watch grown men throw themselves at each other and then try to catch a ball that I can never find. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Or should it? I must be missing something but I don’t know what it is. I think Mr. Know-it-All is missing out on great opportunities to curl up on the sofa with a good book and some red licorice.
Well, where is that other 15%? Including me, am I missing out on something? I think they are reading blogs about woodworking, and chasing their kids around trying to get them to clean their rooms. Ok that’s just me.
Any way I want to wish Mr. Know-it-All a Happy Birthday, you’re getting older!!!!
