Spared

Lunch with blog reader-turned-friend, Nasim, and friend-turned-blog reader, Hadi, Tuesday, April 30, 2008. You remember Hadi was in the car accident with me, right? His arm is now out of the cast and in a brace, poor thing.
I almost fell asleep in a meeting this afternoon. Nothing I could do was stopping me from nodding off in that chair in a darkened room, looking at the projector screen, listening to the conference call in progress among geeks! Then I willed myself to remember how not too long ago, I went to a meeting where this poor woman first sat motionless, then her eyes started to close, then her head started bobbing from side to side, and eventually she fell into a deep sleep in her chair, to wake up startled and confused to the sound of her own snoring! It was really embarrassing and impossible to ignore! Remembering that, all of a sudden I was sober and awake and paying attention to the conference call in progress in the room! Phew, spared one more day!
I'll go to an event after work tomorrow. I'll write my Friday post after I return. Have a glorious Friday you all!

I'm glad you didn't let sleep claim you in front of your co-workers. I still cannot remember the face of this girl sitting in the second row of our international politics lecture, first day of fall semester at UCLA. The professor was this annoyed older man with a parrot nose and he just walked up towards where she was sitting and started conducting his lecture in the most annoying high-pitched voice. People were so embarrassed for her that THEY started melting in their chairs.

How come you haven't been responding to comments, Nazy Joonam...I'm glad you're a busy bee!

Love, Assal

Salam Assal Joon:

You made me laugh! Everytime I went to concerts with my children's father, he would fall asleep and occasionally, he would snore, too!

O.K., O.K., I'm responding to comments now, I promise! I miss it so much! Come and visit with me soon.
