Well in the Walmart that's near by we have a Subway that opened up there a year ago and this week they were celebrating their anniversary and what better way to do that than to invite Jared the Subway guy to our store? Now I live in a fairly small town so having him come to town is like, a HUGE deal. Surprisingly enough though, it wasn't hugely advertised though. Most people I told after the fact didn't even know he had come at all.

So anyway when I heard this I though to myself "when else do I have the chance to meet a guy that's famous for eating sandwiches and who argues that he's rather lose weight than having more meet on his sandwiches." and it was then that I knew I HAD to get my picture with him. So I went to Walmart at 4pm (he was only there 4pm-5pm) and was greeted by a guy in a cartoony sandwich suite who handed me a flier that might as well have said "throw me away". After I got past that guy I saw Jared with only like 4 people around him. It was kind of pathetic actually. I half expected like 20 people minimum. But there was always at least 4 people there. Then when I got a chance, I had my friend take a pic of me with him. It was the best lol.





Enjoy!
