I woke up today decided to use my newfound wisdom from the Bra Whisperer.
I grabbed my brand new brassiere and bent over, it was as if she was speaking to me in my head. I harnessed the girls, threw on a low cut dress and headed out the door.
During my lunch break I decided I needed a pick me up, so I went out to grab my favorite iced coffee.
Of course I got lost along the way. I always forget which road to take and I turned around before I made it to the right one.
As I was u-turning my way around the area, I had the radio on and I heard something that nearly caused me to swerve over the curb.
There it was, my voice at the end of a promotional spot for our station. My reaction was a very delayed response.
I’ve heard it so many times on our station, and while I’m at work so it took a while to hit me that it was being broadcast somewhere else.
I don’t know why I didn’t expect it, but I didn’t. Oh well, there’s nothing I can do about it so it was time to move on.
After work I was meeting up with Perky for my first ‘consultation’ as a freelancer. Offering my advice is something I’ve always done as a favor, but I’m starting to realize my time is valuable and I should be charging, thanks to my friends who are pushing me in that direction.
It’s funny how everything in my world is starting to come together. It has only been a month but I have already produced a commercial and done one consulting job, and gotten paid for both!
It’s not enough to pay the bills but it’s still kind of cool, and the potential is there especially since I haven’t even promoted or actively pursued any business.
After the ‘consultation’ Perky and I hung out for a while and caught up. During the conversation we started talking about wine, and I mentioned one of my favorites that I can’t seem to find anywhere.
Well, I guess that is a bit of a lie. I did find it, but I would have to buy it from the distributor and my contact there is an old man who insists on hitting on me.
Every time I email him about it, he asks if we can open up a bottle of the wine to try it before I buy it. I don’t like it that much! So I’ve put it on hold for the past 2 years and tried several different measure to track it down.
I asked about it when I was in the Napa/Sonoma wine region, I’ve googled, even checked the local wine stores, and nothing… but tonight was my lucky night!
Perky happens to know a girl who’s boyfriend/fiancee is the regional manager for a distributor. She quickly texted her and they have my wine! Whooo hoooo!!!
She knew first hand, because it is one of her favorites too. The best part is it’s cheaper than it was from the slimy greaseball old man who was trying to sell it to me at first.
In the middle of it all this discussion I received a text from the Sweetheart’s husband, and he has 2 tickets to the big golf tournament in town. I had asked him if he could hook me up and he did.
Unbelievable, it’s like lady luck is shining on me for some reason. Part of it may just be asking for what I want for the first time in my life, although it could also be the work of the magical bra whisperer. 🙂
