Pretty nbd (no big deal) … it was our summer intern at the office, hereinafter referred to as Skipper (we all have nicknames at the firm, when she started interning for us a few years ago, we had to come up with her’s. She likes to think she’s a California chica with a year round tan, so at first we contemplated Malibu Barbie … but that was not laced with enough condescension nor sarcasm, she’d take that as a compliment … so then we decided to name her Barbie’s kid sister … Skipper … because, honest to gawd, she skips. Unbeknownst to us at the time … Skipper was created by Mattel to counter complaints about Barbie’s looks and proportions … so basically Skipper is Barbie’s less attractive, less endowed, less shapely kid sister … now that’s laced with enough condescension and sarcasm ;)).
Anyways, I told her I’d tell her … so I did. We went to get some joe at a nearby beanery … and waited an ungawdly long time in line. Then sat down in an psuedo-private location to talk … but a butt soon decided to sit right next to us. Oh well, I stalled for about 5 minutes to see if butt would leave, but he didn’t … so being on a tight schedule … I just told her the scoop.
She was totally cool with it, as I expected her to be. She’s very open-minded and said that anything less than what I told her would have been a disappointment … in light of the build-up she claimed she felt from my delayed disclosure to her (she knew something was up last summer and wanted to know then, but I didn’t share.)
So after we get back to my office, I ask her if she wants to see a picture of me … she quickly says “Yes“.
I pull up my website pics and show her, her first response was …
“I’d have walked right past you on the sidewalk and never recognized you.”
Hmmm … suppose that’s good. And then she adds,
“Wow, you’re not ugly.”
Now that one, I not quite sure how to take !! lol 🙂
