Perhaps that song isn’t appropriate at work…

I attended two meetings in L.A. last week. They went well and I’m hoping for some good results over the next few weeks.

I guess I need to brush up my ‘small group professional skills’ a bit more though; I’m a bit out of practice.

First, I turned a bright shade of red every time I had to speak. I can handle large groups like a champ… it’s the 15 or less that makes me nervous. Perhaps if I had a tan this wouldn’t be a big deal, but my nearly translucent skin hides absolutely nothing.

Next time – turtle neck.

Second, I forgot to turn off my cell phone at the meeting on Friday. Midway through, the chimes started going off. I pushed every button and held down the power but the darn thing just kept dinging! The phone finally turned off and all I kept thinking was - thank heavens it wasn’t Chris.

Every time he calls, ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ blares.




Chris jokingly told me that if we ever got divorced, he would sue me for alimony.

Knowing he would, knowing my family would be on his side of the courtroom, and knowing he’d win, I told him, ‘While my love for you may fade, my love for my money never will. I will stay by your side forever’ and that was the night Jon Bon Jovi started singing Chris’ ring tone.



And people wonder how we keep the romance alive…
