I was just in the elevator on my way up to the coffee, or my office, but coffee first, and I got into the elevator with two very tall, pretty girls who were having a hard time getting their badges to work in the elevator scanner and so I made a comment about this building being like the Pentagon, or something incredibly useful like that, and one of the girls said, "Are you Laurie Perry?"

And I am still asleep in the mornings, so I didn't think it through and I thought, maybe my redonkulous responses have been documented somewhere on the corporate intranet so she knows it's me? then I said, "Yes I am. Hello?" Then: maybe she works in my building and maybe I made a brochure for her once or something. We do so much work via email here that you often don't meet face-to-face.

"I don't work here, I'm a fan!" she said, "I have your book!" and I almost fell over! Because you know, I am at the Bank in my be-incognito-at-work attire and also, no coffee, and also, how cool is that!

She said she was just in town as a consultant so I invited her to our shindig tonight. I hope to see you there! I'll even be wearing mascara this time and will be awake to make real conversation, probably not about the Pentagon but one can never be too sure.
