Live your life. It’s a 6.

Energy and enthusiasm burst like a pinata at a child’s 10th birthday party spilling over, like ripe gossip, into the waiting room of young people whose dreams of the future were as streamlined as the tablets they carried, the modern day portfolio. “Jenna Boyd? Jenna Boyd? They’re ready to see you now.”  Willing her eyes to appear normal in size (wide eyed doe facing down raging grizzly is what she felt she looked like), Jenna Boyd, recent graduate (of the University whose Bursar’s Office accepted 1st born children) followed the smartly dressed assistant to Ogilvy’s Chief Marketing Officer, New York Office, down a hallway and into a conference room bigger than her 2 bedroom apartment. “Please Ms. Boyd, make yourself comfortable…would you care for a beverage?” Jenna felt her throat tighten, hours old breakfast beginning to gurgle in her intestines as she seated herself at the enormous Meyer Wells red elm conference table but soon began to envision herself contributing to the creative endeavor that is global advertising and marketing. It was at that moment she decided this interview was hers, her career would begin here – in which of Ogilvy’s 132 offices in 83 countries she hadn’t a clue, nor did she care, she was taking that important first step in embarking on a new phase of life, it was her beginning.

    Came by to see if there was a Ttot. Hehe. But then I saw the Pitbull/JLo video. And then I had to comment because – thank you – it brings me back to my days of learning Spanish and my friends gave me Pitbull CDs to help me learn slang Spanish. Haha. Interesting, rhythmic music but I like it.
    And then…and then! Madison Square Garden last night – JLo was doing a concert when the electricity went out and all 20K people in there had to evacuate. What a trip! Oh…these modern days of electricity, music and then…when it all stops…haha…In any case, I hope you’ve had a great weekend. 🙂

      You are a psychic my friend! Was reading my draft TToT for today before posting it when I caught your comment:)
      Really?! Had no idea she was touring, lol. Very rhythmic. I like the energy of it.
      So glad you stopped by and I hope you are enjoying the weekend also 🙂
