|HI PHEEBS. But this story is about the girl on the right.|
Yesterday I had to go to an hour long training on bankruptcy (oh the excitement!). I was actually looking forward to it for the simple fact that I think someone slipped Nyquil into my coffee, and I wasn't ready to focus on anything, especially documents that were going to court.
So I showed up and sat in between one woman who was dressed to the nines and tapping her perfectly manicured nails and one woman who had never seen a hairbrush. My accidental greasy hair fit right in. The lady across from me mentioned how the lady doing the training had been rather stressed about the number of handouts to bring. There had been discussions and phone calls and emails over this very important matter.
Anyway, so this bankruptcy training! Well. It was supposed to start at 9:30. And then 9:40 came. 9:45...9:50...9:55....10:00. And then! Suddenly! The door flew open and a woman burst forth!
Sidenote: Have any of you see Romy and Michele's High School Reunion? It's amazing. It's really stupid and really funny and really weird. It's basically the 90's version of Mean Girls. The two main girls (Lisa Kudrow and What's-Her-Face) are girls trying to be popular but are instead personally victimized
Ok, so maybe it wasn't her exactly. But spank me like a giraffe and call me Betty if she is not the spitting image of the girl in the training. She had the same shortish hair and teased bangs, same EXACT voice, and same mannerisms. 90's cult films called, and bankruptcy answered.
When she BURST FORTH into the room, she had a huge box of girl scout cookies. She looked around the room, slammed the box down, looked at the lady across from me and barked "you told me there would only 11 people here. There's 20 people at least! You told me I only needed 11 handouts!" The lady shook her head and said "No, no I never said that."
She was very flustered from then on out. Probably because Lisa Kudrow wasn't with her. And to make matters worth, her big boxes promising Tagalongs were full of binders of bankruptcy documents. Like I said yesterday, my life is rough these days.
And I've mentioned before that the girl who sits next to me is basically Janeane Garofalo, who is also in that movie (Heather Mooney!) I've also gone through a strange bout of running into people from high school.
It's very possible my life is turning into a 90's movie.
