Anyway, We're sitting at dinner, and I'm on my best behavior ya know? Tryna act all cool. If you know me, you might think this comes naturally for me, it doesn't. Shocking. There were 4 couples at our table and we were chatting, I asked this one attorney's wife who I had just met, what she did. And she says, "I'm the head of marketing for KT Tape."
"Oh? What does the company do?" I ask, praying silently that the whole table doesn't burst out laughing because I've never heard of KT Tape.
"It's okay, we're a small company." Then she explains that it's a medical elastic tape that's used to treat sports injuries. I guess it's been around for a long time but their company decided to make it a product that anyone could buy, not just doctors. Then the table launches into a sophisticated discussion about what a great idea that is. There are so many medical products that you don't have to be a genius to know how to use, but for some reason they don't sell them over the counter, only doctors and hospitals have access to them.
"Yeah yeah," I chime in, "The last time I was at the hospital, I was like all, 'Can I puh-lease have like 5 extra pairs of those gauze underwear? I love that stuff!'"
You guessed it.
The table goes silent and everyone stares at me, even the other two moms who knew exactly what I was talking about suddenly pretend like they had never heard of amazing hospital gauze underwear. (Thanks a lot girls for hanging me out to dry.) The KT Tape wife looks at me, face smiling but inside she was wondering who's this zoo animal (wearing a smokin' hot black dress) ?
"I don't really understand." was the last thing she said to me the entire night.
Well, I tried. So much for my big night in the city. At least them mini lemon pies was good. Coulda' eaten' 10 a those suckers.
This Saturday, I am going to my work party. The group fitness post holiday party. I think Pete's a bit nervous because spouses aren't invited and I think that when he hears group fitness, he's picturing ripped straight personal trainers with German accents. In reality, could this crowd be any more the opposite? Only the secret iphone pics will tell. Stay tuned . . .
