This Would Never Have Happened if Gilmore girls Was Still on the Air

My job is the result of a project sponsored by a foundation back east. They are wonderful people and very passionate about what they do. Tonight they are hosting a dinner at one of the best restaurants in town, a place so nice that in all my 33 years in Seattle I've never been there. It's a schmoozy affair for big brass and board members and such like that. Yesterday MAB said, "Oh, we want you to come to the dinner tomorrow night...I put you down as a 'yes' but it occurred to me that I should ask you properly".

"Well, golly, MAB," I said. "I don't know. I'll have to make some calls, rearrange a few things, but I suppose I could be there".

Golly gosh, I'm excited. Fortunately, I've been at the job long enough to know just enough of the people involved that I won't feel like a complete idiot when we arrive. I'm never very good with the "hi, my name is...what do you do..." sort of chitter chat that these sorts of affairs usually require. But under the circumstances I think I'll be able to manage; especially since a nice dinner is involved. I know how to eat.

I am not at all thinking about what you will be wearing..funny...maybe it is that gay gene I have. Oh well Sarah is going to help me pray the gay out and soon I will be worried if your shoes are just right for your outfit.
I am interested in the tasty food. I am also glad your company took into consideration that Project Runway is on Wednesday nites. SO having a dinner on tuesdays works out great for you. Have fun!

I'm with you. I hate the schmoozing and (ugh) networking.

An activity of the Devil if there ever was one.
