I’ll set the scene. It’s summer 2008. I am working my first event planning consulting gig and I have to attend a reception at Marios 3.10, a clothing store that sells things like $300 flip flops and $4000 purses. I did not own anything anywhere near cool enough to wear to enter that store. I went to Nordstrom, explained my problem and the girl went to work and found me cool clothes so I could go inside Marios 3.10.
Today I’m wearing one of the shirts she picked out for me and the pair of white jeans she selected. The white jeans cost $180 and they are the best jeans I have ever owned. I love my white jeans.
Today I’m also wearing my cute new neon pink lace underpants from Victoria’s Secret. It’s no secret that I’m wearing them and if you could see me, you would know that I’m not telling you anything you didn’t already know. How would you know that I have my cute new pink underwears on? Well you would be able to see them through the hole in the front of my jeans that I just now discovered when I looked in the full length mirror in the women’s restroom.
So now I have to just sit at my desk and not walk around until I sprint out the door at lunch and go home and change my jeans.
The white jeans are dead. Long live the white jeans.
AND I just went to find a someecard to put in here for comic illustration of my predicament and my company has blocked the site!
You know what? I want to work. I thought I would be getting more work but the marketing work continues to be funneled to our main office in Salem. So, if they aren’t going to give me some work — at least let me do my goddam blogging!
First the jeans and now no someecards.
This is what’s known as a work around. Take that employer!
