Mission accomplished. I shook hands, smiled and made conversation with the big fish. Now I am back in my small pond and needing to get some actual work done. :blobfistbumpR: :betty:

Devoting half a day to this luncheon event with the bigger fish from the bigger pond.

I am telling myself to smile and remember to be charming but also to gtfo as soon as possible.

Wish me luck!

“Isn’t life a collection of weird quizzes with no answers to half the questions?”

TFW you do something nice for a complete stranger because they asked you to and you get rudeness from them in return. :blobsadleft:
