Thoughts during an important phone call conversation SHOULD be what you’ll say next. Yes, this is mostly the case for me… however there are a few extra bits that take over my brain and I focus on them. Thank God as women we can multi-task… and men think they do (only kidding, but not really).
Recent events left me feeling insecure about my clothing choices.
the radio interview was supposed to begin promptly. It did not. No one is taking blame here (because I don’t like taking blame)… it just happened.
When we were finally connected my business partner and I were ready to take on the world! From our homes. With a glass of wine, or a kitten on our lap. My business partner had the wine and she was probably lounging in the living room or some place normal like the kitchen. I was in my bed. Under the covers. With a cat settled on my lap.
Was I nervous? No… Was I preoccupied? Absolutely.
This interview was happening late at night. My hair was a mess from work and travel. I had tried to change into my pajamas after putting my little girl down to sleep but only managed half way. That’s right folks… I didn’t have my pants. And it’s all I could focus on.
Why am I not wearing pants? Will they notice? Does my voice sound different without pants on?
Once I convinced myself I sounded no different I moved on to the following thoughts:
1. Keep my cat quiet. I don’t want her meowing and then a listener hearing and not buying our book beacuse they don’t like cats.
2. Do I sound like a man?
3. I really wish I had pants. My legs are cold – even under the sheets.
4. Thank goodness I at least had time to put a top on.
5. Why did I pick a bean out of my hand in my dream last night? Did it have magical powers? Is that why it hurt like hell?
