I was working at a temp job in Atlanta…many, many years ago, one of the guys in the office said you do not belong in this job. You look like someone who should be wearing one of those big, floppy hats and sunbathing on a yacht with your fabulously wealthy husband who adores you! I couldn't agree more!!! I loved that one!! Still not true…I still wouldn’t mind a husband who adores me, the floppy hat, the yacht, but as I get older…I think if that is the scenario….I want to be the one who made equally as big money as the wonderful man sitting next me….
When I was in college, I was working at a law firm in downtown Cincinnati and a partner in the firm told me that, “I was lucky that my mom was so beautiful at 50, because a man would look at me and think, maybe she will look that good at 50!” I felt liked chopped liver at that remark. I’m 50 now and I don’t hold a candle to my mom at 50, but I am alive (breast cancer survivor) and I feel pretty healthy, so that is all that matters at the end of the day!
One time, someone figured out who my famous great Aunt was and told me, “ You look like her. Mysterious, dark and dangerous!” I am pretty sure it is not true of me, but mysterious, dark and dangerous…love it!!!
I remember being at the club swimming as a kid and someone telling me I would make a great Senator's wife because I remember names and stories people tell me. So, I would be great for cocktail parties and fundraisers because I could lean over and whisper in my husband's ear...that is the Smith's. She's a lawyer. He's a doctor. They met in college. He likes tennis and she is the golfer. And then I grew up and went to graduate school and thought...wait a minute...why do I have to use my talents to get my husband elected...I should be the Senator!
Love, love this one…”You could be stuck in a brown bag, AND create fun out of it, AND make friends at the same time!”
What is something someone told you about yourself that you never forgot?
