I have to start this post by saying, "THANK YOU" to all of you for the positive thoughts, comments, tweets, etc. on Friday. Not only did reading them all make possible for me not to VOMIT while I was waiting to hear about my sale at work but they actually worked! because the client called us and said that they were going to move forward with our proposal!
I am BACK in NYC tonight (Sunday) to deliver contracts to them tomorrow morning at 8am. Fingers crossed that their attorneys are feeling generous.
With any luck I'll be back to blogging regularly soon!
Anyway, I want to share another Blogher story with you that I think you'll really enjoy...
My roommate this year at Blogher was a woman who runs a sex toy site. She's awesome and we had a great time and great conversations. But that's not what this story is about.
She brought a box of vibrators to NYC to give away so for a few days we had 100+ vibrators in our room. There were vibrators with Halloween themes on them, vibrators with the zodiac symbol for Virgo (and every other sign) on them and a whole bunch of other designs.
On the second day I ran back to my room after work and bumped into the cleaning lady. "Sorry." she said, backing out. "No." I told her, "I'm leaving."
She came in. And then I thought of an even better tip for her.
"What's your sign?" I asked her. She looked at me, confused. I guessed that she didn't speak much english. I think she was Cape Verdean.
"Virgo, Leo, Sagitarius?" I asked her.
"Oh," she said, "Aquarius."
I searched through the box until I found the LONE aquarius vibe at the bottom. I handed it to her.
"Do you know what this is?" I asked.
"No." she said.
"You'll figure it out." I told her.
About 30 seconds later I heard a high pitched giggle that got louder and higher in pitch as it continued.
Between the hysterical laughter she told me, "I figured it out!"
I laughed with her and grabbed my things. As I walked out and down the hall I could hear her laughing hysterically.
The next day I passed her in the hall. When she saw me she started to giggle again and she was still giggling when I got on the elevator.
I hope she had as much fun with that vibrator as I had listening to her laugh about it!
