MARY KAY 101

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.

WHA?!

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.

Smiles.

and says...

"So what year are you in HIGH SCHOOL?"

WHAT?!?!?!!

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.."

and TADA

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.

but..

maybe some day :)


a girl can dream, can't she?
