I was having a typical afternoon one day, headed over to Richard & David's shop to ask some random printing question like I always do. I walked through the door and Richard was on the phone and asked me a question "Would you like to be interviewed by someone from the Chronicle?" Again, very random. But I said "Sure." He handed me his phone and I spoke with Edward, the journalist who ended up interviewing me for an article for his weekly column called "What I Do"....
Richard declined to speak with him, so I ended up talking shop with Edward. This worked out great because asking me about how I started printing and why I'm still here means that he would get an ear-full about Richard & David. So even though Richard decided to not tell his story, they were still being exploited because my story wouldn't be possible without them.
To my pleasant surprise, when I bought the paper this past monday, I saw that my article shared the same page as Britney Spears! My picture, underneath her's in all her popstar glory was really pretty epic. I couldn't have picked a better day for this. The reason why it's so funny is that we always joke at how I'm the pop-culture know-it-all around the shop. Now how fitting is that!
The printed version is always better (of course!) but for those of you who weren't able to get a copy of the paper, here's the online version by clicking here.
