Really? Because I don't care.

| | Comments (2)
"Dressed in a shin-length charcoal dress and wrapped in a multi-colored scarf, Waters sat in a back room on the second floor of her restaurant and, as she talked about her ongoing love affair with clean, healthy foods, sipped on a Blue Bottle Coffee latte splashed with organic Straus Family cream made 60 miles north of San Francisco" (Profile).


In this profile, the writer went into way too much detail.  First of all, it does not interest me what the lady is wearing.  Second, why is it necessary to describe exactly what she is drinking with the exact kind of cream?  And I really don't care where the cream was made. 

If this detail is used to show, I am getting the impression that the lady is picky, since she is described as drinking such a complex drink.  This impression really isn't a positive one.

I missed this quote, or just forgot about it because I definitely agree with you. This is kind of unnecessary because what she is wearing has nothing to do with the quality of her restaurant food. Maybe I can understand the description of what she is drinking because it shows us that she cares to drink eat organic products for herself as well. This could show that she knows organic products are better for her, and she knows customers are people with bodies pretty much just like hers, which could be another motivator for using organic foods and products in her restaurant.

Right, it does make sense describing what she is drinking. I guess it helps to show her character. The description of what she was wearing was so unnecessary that it distracted me from realizing this.
