Taking life easy and smiling at our failures
After taking my 7-year old daughter to school one day, I caught a plane to Chicago for a meeting.
When I opened my briefcase, there for all to see was a plastic baggie full of my daughter’s Lucky Charms cereal that she had been eating on the way to school.
The CEO of my client, a woman, was standing beside me with the best view and with the best comment: «Gee, I see you’ve eaten almost all of the little marshmellows.»
The jokes finally ended after a few minutes and we got on with our meeting.
But when we took our lunch break, the CEO asked me from across the room «Jeff, can we get you some milk for your cereal?» Another round of laughs ensued!!!
