These are the makings of Chris Miller, Produce Director and Meat and Seafood Coordinator at MOM’s Organic Market. The industry savant lives life to the fullest and takes every chance he gets to make the grocery aisles shine. Outside of the retail walls, he takes the time to appreciate what matters most to him in this life: great food, family memories, and epic music. When asked a list of “what IF’s,” here is what he had to say…
IF you had to choose now, what would your last meal consist of?
Blue Crabs, Pistarro’s Pizza (Frederick, Maryland), a thinly smashed burger, cochinita pibil tacos, and a Caesar salad.
IF you could have any actor play you in a movie, who would you want?
Parks and Rec-era Chris Pratt.
IF you could imagine yourself in a different industry, what would it be?
IF you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
My grandparents. I would love to share with them about how much influence they have had on me and my kids through me. Positive influence lives on longer than we can appreciate.
IF you had to wear the same thing every day, what items of clothing would you pick?
Jeans and a flannel.
IF you were another species in the animal kingdom, what would you be?
An Australian Kelpie or some other herding dog. I think best when my legs are moving.
IF you could make everyone watch a movie of your choosing, which movie would you want them to see?
Cool Runnings. Feel the rhythm, feel the ride, get on up, it’s bobsled time!
IF you had to eat the same thing every day for the rest of your days, what would you eat?
Ledo Pizza. Great hot for dinner, and perfect cold for breakfast. If you know, you know.
IF you could join a musician, dead or alive, on stage to sing along or play an instrument with, who would you choose?
IF you could re-experience an awesome day in your life, what day would you choose?
Any of the days I skipped school and went hiking on the Billy Goat Trail (Potomac River, Maryland, side) with some of the folks who are still my closest friends to this day.
IF you had a superpower, what would you want it to be?
To make aphids and fruit flies disappear.
IF you had to choose two songs to be the soundtrack of your year, what would they be?
“Backwards With Time” by The Avett Brothers and “Own Light (What Hearts Are For)” by Brother Ali.
