Part of my job is to organize events. Actually it’s a big part of my job. So today was one of our Spotlight presentations. Terry, our speaker, had a video in his presentation about Pygmy rattlesnakes and the AV set up wasn’t really working for him to show the video. Luckily he left the room offering he knew exactly what he needed to do. That was great news for me because this AV stuff has gotten away from me over the years. Honestly I know that it’s not hard but in my experience it’s always been someone else’s job. While at Thomson we’d call in an AV service. At Federated that was Carmen’s sole purpose. Point Park I think IT would have fixed whatever, so I haven’t bothered to really pay attention. I mean really, I just don’t care enough. Although I’ve been trying to act like I do.
So I was sharing with Julia that we needed to add a HDMI cord to our “meeting” box that we carry from meeting to meeting when here comes Terry back into the room with a helper. Luckily we know to start setting up 1/2 hour before the presentation for reasons just like this. It takes time to get that AV stuff up and running. Plus there’s lunch.
So anyway, in comes Terry with the most beautiful human being (man) I have ever seen, prompting me to become even more interested in the ins and outs of AV business, all of the sudden. Although I didn’t realize it at the time I now know I did not take my eyes off of him. Just blatant staring. I’m not sure if my mouth was gaping open…I can’t be sure. It was probably extremely embarrassing for him. I’m going to guess he is probably in his late 30’s…probably the age of my son Zachary. Which normally would make me sick to my stomach but I don’t know, I think after 35 it’s kinda like we’re all the same age now aren’t we? Well anyway, I could not take my eyes off of him because I just couldn’t get over how good looking he was. I kept looking for a flaw. Bad teeth? Hole in his face? Disfigured somewhere? Nope. Perfect. PERFECT. So what does it all mean?
If you were my friend Diane, I think what would pop into your head is “there’s my Lynny.” I am not dead inside. I am sure this man, whoever he is will keep one of those “stay away from this woman” pictures of me up on his desk. But honestly I’m not even that embarrassed. As a matter of fact if I see him again I think I’ll just admit to him that he’s the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen. I bet he hears it all the time. If not it is my duty to strike up a conversation and tell him, perhaps over lunch. When I was in college at Carlow, one of our nuns said she thought it was kinda like a sin to not give someone a compliment when a compliment is due. And I’m no sinner.
I will have to go through my calendar and see what meeting I’ve scheduled is coming up. I am sure to have AV issues and have to call someone.
