I mentioned earlier in the week that I started selling Mary Kay.
I am actually SUPER excited about it.
I don't know how good I'll be, but I am definitely going to enjoy the discount on product.
Monday was my first MK meeting.
I left late.
Kissed my crying-screaming-only wanting mommy little boy goodbye
Had to get gas.
Grabbed the wrong purse.
Forgot my papers.
Finally got on my way when...
The car breaks down.
I was already late.
I called my (almost) director who is AH-MAZE-ING.
She stops to get me.
I leave my car, with plans for my step-dad to help me pick it up later.
We arrive at the meeting.
We weren't SO late.
She sits me next to another "new girl".
It felt semi-high school to me.
Everyone goes about their business, and I try and make conversation with this girl.
It was awkward.
She asked me the same questions over and over.
APPARENTLY she wasn't listening to my responses.
Eventually I gave up.
After a very long awkward silence I mention that I have a kid.
She looks at me.
"So what year are you in HIGH SCHOOL?"
My eyes bugged out.
I uncrossed my legs and turned to look at her.
Maybe a little too snotty I snorted out "I'm 23!"
She looks a little embarrassed..
fidgets in her seat, and mumbles an apology!
After we both recovered it was time for us to "go up front".
It felt similar to having to introduce a new kid on the first day of school.
My director introduced us, and before letting me do my thing she informs everyone of my car trouble.
chuckle-chuckle here and there.
So then she asks me...
"What are you most excited about..?"
and I said..
"Well, as some of you mentioned earlier, the thing you love most about Mary Kay changes. Well as I was sitting on 71 waiting for Shandra to pick me up, I realized that one of those pink cars ya'll hand out sounded pretty darn good in that moment."
and of course I finished it off with a classy...
"And of course I love the product, and all of you.."
Everyone laughed, and embraced me into their group.
Its sort of like high school.
Kissing butt, gets you far.
And I am NOT above kissing butt.
So there you have it.
I survived my first meeting.
I am officially a MK girl.
Without the suit, bright lipstick, or pink car.
maybe some day :)
a girl can dream, can't she?
