The Men

Leave a comment

From the kick-off meeting for a client work group:

<JG introduces himself and explains his role to the group.>

JG: “I represent Corporate Communications.” <glances around the room; then, deadpan> “And I represent The Men.”

<Roomful of women laughs.>

JG: <more seriously> “I’m not directly on this project, but I’m managing the Media Center project, which another vendor will be building for us. I’m here so I can listen and take things back.”

TW: <chortling a little> “To The Men?”

JG: <again, deadpan> “What?! We have meetings, too, you know!”

I'm Denise. I'm a dog lover, a nature fanatic, a hiker, and a future yurt-dweller. I believe that stories lurk in all the tiny moments that make up our everyday lives. They wait, curled into themselves, until someone finds them and jailbreaks them, leading them out into the light. I have a flashlight. Follow me!
