I had to help a fellow office attorney out today as he doesn’t have an assistant and had big time clients in, so wanted to of course impress them and be professional and have someone offer them coffee or tea from the kitchen, and bring him any documents he needed while in his meeting in the super large fancy conference room.
So I get the phone call to come in and bring some papers a few minutes after they arrive and will ask them if they want anything to drink. In I go but only one person is sitting there at the large table – apparently the other client with the attorney had gone themselves to the office kitchen. So as I am walking out of the conference room I catch them and ask if they needed anything else….and the oddest request to date…
From the deli downstairs in the building.
Pineapple, strawberries, berries, but please pick out any watermelon. No melon.”
I rode down in the elevator with another work colleague who had been passing at the time of this request outside of the conference room, and he turned to me and asked if this client was being serious!
I said, “Yes, I’m on my way to the deli now.”
“Wow”, he said! He said it was the oddest request he has ever heard from anyone for a meeting, to have someone to get him fruit salad and then be specific and ask if they could pick out any watermelon!!
“Especially,” he continued, “from a guy who’s not clean-shaven. Who does he think he is?”
A good thing came out of it though – I made a profit in my reimbursement 🙂
Oddest client refreshment request to date!
On another note, one year ago today, on The Highline, Stuart proposed to me 🙂
And I said yes obviously…not knowing that a year later I’d be married AND have a little schmonkoid on the way!!!!
What can happen in just one year….WOWZA!!!

Another show tonight, another show weekend – translated as….get all my 365 criteria done asap before I get to the theatre since I won’t be home before 1am!!
Sooooo…Pavlov’s dogs learned, through repetition, to not make the same mistakes over and over. They learned, through repetition, and suffering, that eventually what they were doing was harmful to them and not the best option, and so they adapted….well, I can’t say so much for myself!
I decided, again, to walk down the 17 flights at the office to the lobby and then immediately back up to the 17th floor as my cardio at the office. I have done this before and it was HELL!! In fact, I have done this twice and both times were HELL! So why oh why would I ever do it again??????????? You tell me!
I just thought it was raining out and I needed to do cardio, and since it is my show tonight, then walking would have been what I do to get it in, but then it was raining out, so what could I do instead?? “I guess I will walk down 17 flights and back up 17 flights”……………..UGH!!! Why Am I So Stupid!!??!!
So, how was the walk up and down….you guessed it…HELL!!
AND, AND…I was wearing boots today so that was a super smart decision! AND, AND, AND…I wore a million layers of sweaters so was dying of heat! My heart was about to pop out of my chest! It was beating so hard in my head and I was panting like a friggin’ dog, but no no no, not like one of Pavlov’s dogs!!! Pavlov’s dogs are sitting by the pool with a margarita in hand chilling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s not so bad walking DOWN 17 flights, but just a few flights up and it hits you like a tonne of bricks, and I was walking slowly!!!!!! Sooooo, what the eff is it about stairs?? I can’t be THAT out of shape? Can I? Can I really?
And you know what’s worse….you KNOW at some point, in my however many days left in this 365 challenge, I am going to walk up and down 17 flights again and complain about it. YUP! Oh, I just remembered, our office is moving at the end of next month to the 18th floor – GREAT!! So it will be 18 flights down and 18 flights up soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
UGH. UGH. UGH.
