Last night I went out for dinner and drinks with friends of mine who work in the same industry as me. We are all attending a internationally recognized conference in Philidelphia next month for everyone in our field.
Me: "So what are our plans for the conference."
K: "We get drunk every night we're there."
A: "I am not so sure that a good idea. I don't want this to be a repeat of Chicago. I say we go out Tuesday night only. That will be fun."
Me: "You know, my goal for the conference is have as many men hit on me as women hit on K. That's what would make my night. I figure with the conference in Philly, I raise my chances at least 50% over not getting hit on at all last year at the Vegas conference. There is a good possibility the larger concentration of black men there will find me attractive."
K: "What are you talking about? Everyone thinks you're attractive! I say 'Me and Lauren...' and someone almost always says 'oh the attractive one?"
A: "It's true. People in my office say the same thing!"
Me: "Wait! So my subtitle is "the attractive one"?!? Awesome! I would prefer "smart, attractive", but hey! I will take it!
