Simply watching Giada’s show on a daily basis isn’t enough. I needed to profess my love the only way I know how–inappropriately at a book signing. So, I took a half day and zipped to the mall on my lunch to purchase her new cookbook and await my destiny. This was my first book signing for someone I have a borderline infatuation with. For some, they get tongue tied around athletes or actors. For me, it’s people from the Food Network.
I patiently waited in line with the aging population of America and listened to them drone on about their grandchildren. If they weren’t married and older than 60, they were in their 50s and with their daughters, who felt it necessary to discuss their boyfriends and how much they love Giada. I’m not saying I was there to pick-up women. My main goal was to make my case for why Giada should leave her successful husband and elope with me for a life of mediocrity. Call me a home wrecker. I’m OK with that. Nevertheless, I figured I’d warm-up on the 450 ladies of the line.

Now would be the appropriate time to hide me if you are not a fan of Giada. Off to hopefully get her book and get it signed. She better write “with love.”
