Are you lookin at me or my ear piece?
I admit some days I am more put together than other days. Heck, I am a working mom – some days I am in sweats all day and some days I actually put on lipstick and wear a dress. Geez, this mama knows how to get cleaned up.
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a launch party for the Jawbone, an Uber cool blue tooth earpiece, in San Francisco with Beth, aka Tech Mama and Glennia. (More on the actual product later.) As a parting gift, we each got to take one of those cool things home. My husband even thought it was cool and tried to convince me to give it to him – uh NO! I have been on a mission to find one of these for months, so the Jawbone came at the perfect time.
Regardless, the other day was one of those days I actually took a shower, was dressed for a client meeting and well, looked good! (Albeit a rare occasion.) As part of my normal routine, I stood in line with the masses at Starbucks for my regular hazelnut latte. I sat down reading my blackberry, sipping my coffee, Jawbone in my ear. I am usually in my own world reading, working or well, trying to wake up. This morning I was somewhere in between – reading and people watching. I caught a gentleman looking my way. Hmmm, kind cute I guess – weird tie though. Oh well, I’m married and if I WAS looking for a secret lover it would be Brad Pitt. Back to my Crackberry. I answer a call that comes in from a client. I look over at the weird tie guy while I am talking and he is looking over at me again. Hey, this is getting weird. I end my call and gather my things. As I walk out the door, he stops me and says, "Hey been looking for a new ear piece, I like yours. What kind is it? Does it work in a noisy place like Starbucks?"
I told him all about my new toy – but am secretly thinking he wanted my phone number:) Yeah right! Well geez, what am I chopped liver? Even a happily married girl can have her morning fantasy right? Who woulda thought that my new ear piece was a conversation starter. Who needs match.com? Single ladies – go get ‘em while their hot!
