all of our friends and allies are getting paranoid when they come over, well
Monk is anyway. Fear based on the blog. The good news is that the names are all changed to protect the innocent. So tonight we were meeting to work out the logistics for our Golf Tournament on Monday. We ironed out all the plans (what we were wearing, how we are laying out the booth, what equipment we will be using) and how we will be working on that date. We also discussed our next strategic move (Bakesale Betty’s here we come). We sent out a menu for a job in November. Now we are discussing side hustles. Everybody we know has a side hustle right now…why? RECESSION! Necessity is the mother of invention after all. So we are working with our pals Monk and Logistics Prime (husband of the Educator). During the side hustle conversation we told Logistics Prime he really needs to consult.
Now for the record he is concerned that he doesn’t have years experience consulting and that crossing the lines to become a consultant might not be the move he would want to make. I told him that we are his greatest testimonial and test case. We were told by the ED of the festival that we produced and sold more in our maiden voyage than some vendors that had done with three years experience. We know and are sure that he will be an incredible Consultant in this industry. Jump in Prime! Self Determination is the greatest nation in the world. Of course, you will need lots of 5 Hour Energy.So that was the side hustle conversation.
The tournament and the jobs we are getting are providing us the impetus to print menus and get connected with political individuals. We are finding that we know connectors. People that know people who decide things. These are the people we want to call us and the ones we want to talk to about this collaboration.
So back to the tournament…there is something so pure about collaborating with like minded entrepreneurs. We got some great ideas, but we were able to finalize our plan and stay on task. We thought about chotchkies — I have contacts so if we were going that route we could actually enlist their aid — but the timeline wouldn’t allow us to do what we wanted to do. We came up with our design for the booth/tent itself. Through some discussion and joking we came to realize that the skins game is a true golf game. You will have to wait to see our artistic creation to understand this reference. We all came away with our action items and deliverables timeline. All hands on deck, we have another gig on its way! Pictures and updates to follow.
Now as for those ashy grapes…I don’t know if I will ever forget that saying as long as I live. First of all how do grapes get ashy? Do they forget to lotion after they come out of the shower? Do they turn to stone when they climb out of the pool? The whole reason why Monk was polishing the grapes is because they did not have the same luster as the other fruits. The reason why this came up tonight is because we were looking at a menu for a future gig and the whole fruit selection came up again. For some inexplicable reason Pink seems to believe that men, left to their own devices, will order and then eat fruit. I think not – I do think that I have a little more insight into the subject matter than she does on this one. This conversation brought about the grapes. Now you have the road map to the thought process. Stay tuned there will be more to come. If you want really good grapes go to Berkeley Bowl.
Life is short…eat something memorable.
