mm in the real world

I'm going crazy. MM crazy. MM has begun interfering with my life.

TRUE STORY #1
I was replacing one of the receptionists at work today.

And at the same time, I was reading the comments on MM. (seeee, I really do read them all)

When someone called, instead of saying "Company Name"...

I said "Material Maidel".

I promise you I did.

When I realized what I was saying - I was like OMG and hung up on the person! One of my coworkers was like 'what did you say??'. I tried to save and told her that I was reading up on fabric samples and got distracted.

TRUE STORY #2
I was at an event the other night, and a former high school teacher was there. She asked if I was still doing any writing. (I used to be editor of the paper - yes I was that girl)

I responded, "yes, I'm actually doing a lot of writing these days".

And then she asked me to specify.

Which is when I realized that I had been thinking about MaterialMaidel.

Story #1 was funny.
reminds me of one time when I called my mothers cell phone while she was at work, she answered her cell phone saying her name and the company she's from, as though she got mixed up between her cell phone and work phone

Why don't you spread the blog between your friends and you'll hit the 10,000 mark.
