open mouth, out comes dumb

March 9, 2011

Yesterday morning was my first wine trail meeting, at a very early (for me) 8am.  Appearing awake and alert was my goal, but my brain was struggling to cooperate.

After a quick introduction to a few people my boss runs out for a second, leaving me alone.  No big deal, I thought, as a woman walked over towards me looking like she’s going to introduce herself.

I initiate the conversation, though, with a solid opener.

“Good, how are you?” is what comes out of my mouth.

I’m not sure if I thought I’d picked up an ESP connection with her, but she clearly had not spoken out loud to me.

Thankfully she did respond with, “I know what you meant…” but she did not continue the conversation and kinda walked on by me.

And to think I didn’t wear my yellow t-shirt, purple long sleeve shirt and green scarf for Fat Tuesday because I didn’t want to give anyone the impression I was any sort of weird/ crazy.

    I met my then husband’s mistress, who said ” hi, how are you?” (the nerve), to which I responded “nice.” How pathetic.
