At Ralphs last night, buying groceries before Mad Men, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a nattily dressed cherub in the checkout aisle. Could it be? I threw my Pop Tarts to the ground and practically tackled the kid’s father. “Is that…. ARLO?” I gasped to Mad Men creator, producer, and writer Matthew Weiner. “Yes, yes it is.” he answered, like the proud poppa he should be. “Can I see what he’s wearing?” Arlo stepped forward wearing a sea foam green double-breasted suit with peaked lapels, a tan fedora, a giant, pale pink bowtie and FABULOUS silver sneakers. AT THE GROCERY STORE! I LOVE IT! And I could just SHOOT myself for not bringing my cell phone and getting the picture. (Sorry, the pic to the left is just a generic Google image.) But I saw Arlo! I really did! And he’s as fabulous as they say he is! Oh yeah, I guess I also saw Matthew Weiner, as well, didn’t I? And 20 minutes before Mad Men started. That’s interesting. I guess he was also stocking up before the big episode.
