I used the word 'boobs' in front of two female co-workers, one I had just met that day. I would not have normally used that word, but we were talking about the drag queens...They didn't seem to notice, but I felt it imperative to convey to them that I would never had used it in their presence normally, but without having a suitable replacement word for the phenomenon, I was at a loss. When I discussed this with photogoot's wife, she backed me up on this saying that she too, would likely use the word "boobs" in describing a cross-dressing male's...well, boobs.
Last night we loaded up 700 people onto 11 buses and had dinner at the National Building Museum as it is one huge structure, and held us all, plus a live brass band, and a dancefloor. There was an open bar and a waitstaff which waited on us hand and foot. It was magnificant! I started my evening off with a fine double-scotch as RCIO's and VP's filled the table around me. At one point I became uncomfortable with all the attention, and went to 'mingle.' I sat at a table with three Sisters and introduced myself. Unfortunately, they had all heard of me as well, and so the questions began. The bell chimed eight and they all excused themselves, leaving me at the table alone. I gave photogoot a call, and he headed my way to pick me up, half an hour he said. I popped in a scooby-snack and headed outside - to bedlam! People were streaming outside to board buses, and not doing so in a very methodical manner. I quickly organzied things and got four full buses loaded before photogoot showed up. I jumped in the car and we took off. By the time we made our way back to the hotel, the first bus was arriving. Yes, someone saw me in the passenger seat and yelled, "Hey look, Eric's too good to ride in the bus!" How quickly they can turn on you. photogoot procured some cigars and we spent the evening sitting in the hotel bar drinking P.U. on tap and smoking with a couple of our smoking buddies from STL. It was a nice time, but I didn't get to bed until 0100.
