As some of you may know, I am the official Dedham cousin of the good people at b.good. This prestigious appellation entitles me to one free hand-ground hamburger a day for as long as I shall walk the earth. I take advantage of it about once a week, often getting some of their delicious, hand cut fries as well. When they are fresh out of the oven (as they are baked, not fried) there is nothing better.
Tonight when I walked in I saw a friend standing and waiting for his meal. As we were talking, he asked if I had ever been there before. I laughed and said yes, my photo is on the wall. It’s a pretty bad picture, actually, but there I am on a plaque next to the cash register.
There was a new girl behind the counter, and she heard our conversation. “That’s you?” she asked. I told her it was, and her responce made my night.
“You’re kind of a celebrity around here,” she told me.
I have achieved celebrity status in a fast food restaurant at the local mall. It can’t go anywhere but downhill from here.
