At Saturday’s Pomona Information Fair, I said hello to Councilwoman Paula Lantz at the City Council booth and was given my very own official City of Pomona Mayor’s Office pencil.
“For taking accurate notes,” Lantz said with a smile. Hey, I’ll take whatever help I can.
Photographer Richard Nunez was there with spending money from the Goddess of Pomona blogger. He dipped into the stash to buy me a hot dog and a Pepsi — wasn’t that nice? — and then paid me a compliment, of sorts.
“Do you have a tapeworm in your stomach? I read about how you’re always eating at restaurants,” Nunez said. “I thought, this guy must be huge” — he held his arms out in a giant bubble — “but you’re not.”
It’s all about portion control, Mr. Nunez. At least, I always thought so…
