The Art of Seduction
Rochesterians around the world will acknowledge that Wegman's is a force to be reckoned with. Most days it is a godsend because it eases some of the gastronomic strain of being single or in a relationship. Single and trudging home to an unimaginative refrigerator? No problem, have your petits gateaux and eat it too at Wegman's! Newly married and don't know how to cook? No problem, pick up his/her favorites at Wegmans. He likes sushi, she likes risotto? No problem, find both at Wegman's!
The tremendous convenience of shopping at Wegman's can be a mixed blessing though... Even before I have articulated my innermost craving, the elves at Wegman's have already created, packaged and set it up invitingly. Low fat feta? Spinach Parmesan Rounds? Multi grain pita chips? Organic whole wheat mini-baguette? I ran my finger along the tempting loaf, and whispered tremulously, "How did you know?"
(sigh) I could get used to this ever-solicitous seduction.
What then?! The rest of one's life is a barren wasteland of phone calls to Time Warner Cable, angry posts on RnR on Craigslist (honey, no one writes letters to the editor anymore!), futile fumbling around the interminable aisles (rearranged yet again) at Target... Enough, I say! Wegman's, its time you take over the world! Else, stop being so completely seductive and turn into a slob, like the rest of them!
