Once Upon a Time... (or last week)

A woman walked into a fancy meeting room, in the big city, to meet with some important business women who want to talk to her about writing for their very well-known publication.

She was excited because this may just mean that her writing in her silly little blog might actually lead to an actual "career" and be seen as something other than "Silly & Little".

She wore a nice looking pantsuit.
She had her hair done professionally for the first time in years.
Her make up was beautifully applied.
Her tasteful earrings matched her dainty necklace.
Her shoes matched her bag.

She walked with purpose .
She held her head up high.
She looked them straight in the eyes.
She spoke with knowledge and eloquence.
She used a firm handshake.

She left the meeting feeling confident.
She drove home and was happy.
She felt as if she had accomplished something great.
She glanced into the rear view mirror, and smiled.

She walked in the door of her homestead.
Took off her suit jacket.
Only then, to see the huge dried stripe of white and green chicken poop running down the back.


She should have stayed on the farm!

Pin It!

Better than on the front!!!

Kim said...

Tatersmama said...

They wouldn't have seen it until you were leaving... and by then their minds were already made up anyway!

That really happened to you?!

kreations said...

well they wouldn't have called you if they didn't like the farm part of you. Also you would have been you if you didn't take the farm with you.
Good luck I hope it works out.

Ha ha ha! That is so funny! Who knows, chicken poop clothes just might be the next "must-have" Spring 09 accessory! lol

Deanna said...

At least it didn't smell!! I am sure that you did AWESOME!!! Congrats in advance!

Joanna said...

Ok, I was definitely not expecting that. But Mary Moore is right - at least it wasn't on the front! It could definitely have been worse!

Sab said...

Ooh! That sucks! Funny, but still!

Congrats though! I'm sure you did GREAT!

jrmom said...

That would've happened to me too. But I'm sure it only added to your witty charm...good luck...I'm sure they loved you!

Sheesh, a little bit of chicken poop? That indicates at least that you were a victim of a random hit....not your fault. NOW, toilet paper sticking out from your skirt or worse your skirt hem stuck in your pantyhose while you are 'mooning' the whole group...that indicates a whole 'nother class of person. Thanks for that great chuckle Dana!!

I knew from the beginning you were going to tell something like that. I'm so sorry I laughed. But sincerely, I hope things work out just the way you want them to.
