Picture the scene....

...I'm sat in a small conference room at my client's office in downtown Manhattan. It's an important meeting, we are scheduled to review the work we've done for him with his senior management team. My boss is to my right, my client is to my left and we are anticipating the arrival of the Client Services Director in charge of the account, one of the agency's biggest. I'm hanging with the bigwigs!!

Knowing the CSD is going to be a little late, I'd given her my phone number so she could call us when she arrived and find the conference room easily. I'm making a huge effort to look intelligent and professional in front of my client. My phone buzzes and I check to see if it's a message from the CSD...

"Hey sexy, what are you wearing?"

Cue me smirking and turning flame red while my boss looks at me quizzically.

"Um...it wasn't the CSD" I mutter

Timing Catweazle, timing!!

Fortunately the meeting actually went really well, despite my momentary lapse in concentration ;-)

Uh oh! texting can get you in MUCH trouble. JimmyEW is often texting very inappropriate things to me. I'm so paranoid when someone grabs my phone.

Kitty said...

Haha! What a nice phone call!

There's nothing like the beginning of a romance. What a wonderful feeling.

hooray!

Your life sounds like something out of a great romantic comedy, Fish! Ever thought of writing a book?

Hi Sarah, Men indeed ;-)

Hi Sassy, I can only imagine, I don't let anyone get their hands on my phone ;-)

Hi Kitty, yes the start of a relationship is a great time :-)

Hi Blur Ting, it made me laugh, however Catweazle is back in North Carolina now, so I won't see him for a while, but we are making plans to get together :-)

Hi Spandrel, you are *too* kind, I'm flattered. I do think of having a go at writing a book on occasion. I tried to write one for a year before I started the blog, but its incredibly hard work, especially when you have a full time job. Maybe some day :-)

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Aren't ya glad you didn't take a restroom break and forget your phone, only to have it answered by a well-meaning meeting attendee?

Hi Heather, um....I don't remember what I was wearing at the time. Business attire I imagine. Nothing to get excited about ;-)
