most years around this time of year i get to go to an industry convention in lovely anaheim, california and most years i see patricia bragg of bragg liquid aminos fame walking and talking with folks. she’s remarkably witty and spry for her 83 years of age.
odin loves braggs on his rice so i thought this year it would be fun to talk and take a picture with her so i could show him who i get to hang out with while i’m out of town 🙂
i casually mentioned that i had a son, odin, who was born 16 weeks early and was really small but was now a strong, healthy kid, that he really, really loved braggs and rice and that he’d be super happy if i had my picture taken with her because he would recognize her from her picture on the bottle. she got very excited and told me that she was born early 83 years ago, only weighed two pounds and was in the hospital for months! we talked for a bit about prematurity – maybe for a little longer than the other people waiting to talk with her would have liked.
she’s a really nice lady, i’m glad i took the time to stop and chat!
