This last week has been a hodge podge of activities that has left me a little confused, a little frustrated and alot tired. Just to share with you here are a few of my random thoughts and conversations….
Me to Vendor:
“So you are saying that the [carpet] runner should have a large seam in it? Hmmm. Okay, so let’s circle back to the other sticking point. It is still the wrong carpet…..”
Vendor to Me:
Vendor: “I can totally do a stainless steel top. I just need to find someone to do it for me.”
Me: “Ummm I thought you were a stainless steel fabricator specializing in table tops?”
Vendor: “We are but we don’t have anyone on staff who does that work…”
Me: “Okay. Bye.”
Me To Client
Me: ” You do know that a 60″ TV and custom cabinetry is going to take up the majority of the wall space right?”
Client: ”I was hoping to hide the TV, but I don’t want doors, fabric or art in front of it. Is that possible?”
Client to Wife
Husband: “I want lounge chairs in the living room.”
Wife: “Well I want to be 20 pounds lighter and have an orgasm every night. Sometimes you don’t get what you want.”
Me: “Excuse me, I think my phone is ringing…”
Yes, all the above things happened this week and no I couldn’t make this stuff up if I wanted to. I am going to try to plow through the next day and a half so I can spend the rest of the long weekend doing nothing but frantically pulling together outfits for yet another photo shoot, but this one involving me. While I typically love a chance to be a fool in front of the camera, this week all I want to do is sit on my couch with Tivo and bag of Doritos – yes it is that kinda weekend.
However, I am going to put on my big boy Underoos and get started with my day. And before I forget…..
Enjoy your long weekend and be safe!
