So today starts off with it being a bit windy and I’m wearing my Marilyn Monroe little black dress. You know the cute dress that loves to “flip up” in the smallest breeze? Yeah, that one. And I have off site appointments all day. Walking through parking lots toting a brief case and clutching one’s dress is funny. (Maybe not so funny, at least not for me)
Then I’m back in the office, talking to one of our installers. I have to crouch down to look in a file drawer. So I crouch. Then I realize I’m eye level with and facing his…ahem….belt. I play it cool. I think, “Nothing to see here. Go about your business.” I retrieve the item from the file drawer quickly, turn away and then stand up. All while wearing the shortish Marilyn Monroe dress. And 5 inch high platform sandals. Had I stood up without the “turn around” I would have most likely fallen face first into him.
Then, while talking to the Boss, normally a taciturn guy, we start to talk about a vendor. I mention the vendor’s relatively obscure ethnic heritage and he launches into a Seinfeld story. It’s funny to hear this straight-laced guy talk about Seinfeld-isms. And it’s cracking him right up. This is happening, while I think that today could have and would have been an excellent Seinfeld episode in itself.
Wish me luck. I now need to go to the mall and try on bathing suits. No doubt, hilarity will ensue.
