Lights, Camera, “Very Important Meeting”
January 20, 2011
As they say, “Another year older, another year wiser,” and somehow it seems that this cliché truly manifests itself perfectly in our own Rachel: budding party planner and entrepreneur of awesomeness. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for myself.
How else can Rachel be described other than simply hilarious, and she makes turning 22 look like a walk in the park (even though we all know she is secretly suffering from a quarter-life crisis). This crisis was strategically averted thanks to Maddy’s quick thinking when she scheduled a “Very Important Meeting” last Thursday.
This secretive “Very Important Meeting” quickly triggered my inventive and often untamable imagination to swirl out of proportion. I spent the majority of Wednesday telling everyone I encountered (strangers in the elevator not exempt) of my soon to be celebrity status as I was about to be told that I am to be featured on the next episode of the “Oprah Winfrey Show”, or at least given an interview on her XM radio show. Convinced that the Love Grown name had gotten into the hands of this “Diva of Daytime”, I mentally prepared myself to be bombarded by cameras as I walked into work on Thursday.
As I got to the office that fabled Thursday afternoon, everything seemed like business as usual and I was rather taken aback by the lack of flashing lights and, more importantly, lack of Oprah. I hesitantly sat at my desk, awaiting the commencement of the “Very Important Meeting”, and commencement of my super-stardom. As meeting time rolled around, we all assembled ourselves into the conference room. Crossing my fingers that the florescent light was not washing out my already pasty Irish complexion (a terrible look for a soon to be on camera star), Maddy, Alex, and Jason strolled into the conference room, adorned with wide smiles and a plate full of Funfetti cupcakes. As rounds of “Happy Birthday” begin to erupt in the small office, my dreams of getting to meet the legend that is Oprah Winfrey quickly diminished, but thankfully for everyone else, I tend to have a quick recovery time on life changingly traumatic situations. I helped myself to a cupcake and congratulated Rachel on her birth. Hooray for Rachel!
As if the cupcake wasn’t enough to raise my spirits, we got the new love t-shirts delivered today. Three cheers for LOVE! Thank goodness we are all so good looking. Tyra Banks should definitely put us on the next season of “America’s Next Top Model”. That is the last daytime television reference of the blog post. I promise.
Lots of Love,
