I’ve been contemplating retiring from Smuudged Pot for a while now. I finally decided that November would be my last month at the shop. And then the PR Specialist at work pitched a story about me working at Smudged Pot to Wilmington Magazine for their Southern Exposure section — a full-page story and photo about “people you chould know” in the area. And the editor went for it. Now I can’t quit. I mean how would it look for a marketing and PR professional to ruin a story before it even gets printed. So much for making plans.
