I Am Trying To Be Big About It

Dana @ 6:04 PM | Filed under: General

It was 8:00 in the morning and I was on my way to the dentist to –

get a ROOT CANAL.

This is nobody’s favorite thing to do.

On my way, I bumped into a friend who happens to also be a parent of a friend of Gussie’s at school.

“What did you to for Winter break?” she asked.

“I stayed in New York and got caught up on some work”, I responded — reluctantly.

And even though I knew that I would live to regret it, I asked her anyway–

“What did you do?”.

I had bitten the bullet.

“Oh! We went to ‘PARADISE’. A beautiful secluded island where people like Mick Jagger vacation. We rented (famous designer whose name shall be withheld)’s house. It was staffed with 15 people and we were waited on hand and foot the whole time!”

(This is what I get for askin’…)

She went on to tell me all about eating on linen table cloths, using silver utensils for every meal, and –

“The staff”!

“The staff” was so attentive that:

“If you “droped a t-shirt it would be washed and hanging in the sunshine, folded and on your bed ready to wear before it even hit the ground.”

I listened and listened and listened and I graciously asked questions, as I compared my Winter break to hers.

Then I decided that –

I would rather go get that ROOT CANAL…

  1. Isn’t it amazing how ppl ask questions knowing u’ll ask it back and they will have a chance to go blah-blah-blah abt it for hours. They dont wanna know abt u… they wanna talk abt their life. Well, that’s understandable ;) We all do that… esp when we ask “Wassup?” and “How re u doing?”. :P
