We all dream about a great career and it’s so easy to forget all insane jobs we have had before our dream job become the reality. Off the top of my head, I once e-mailed the assistant director of a commercial I worked on as a production assistant after drinking a bottle of wine and told him I thought he was dreamy. He was very good-looking.
He wrote back telling me that he was married. I didn’t know. That was before I reached a ripe enough age to take notice of a man’s left ring finger. What a cow I was. He wrote that he would keep me in mind for future jobs – he liked my directness.
- I was a server at a French restaurant in Rittenhouse Square in 2010. One time I was made to hand out champagne at a MAC store on Walnut St. in Philadelphia for a party we were catering. Handing out alcohol to complete strangers was easy and fun, so I enjoyed the experience.Later on the employees gave me a makeover – in all purple. I normally don’t wear much makeup let alone secondary colors on my face. Looking in the mirror after they had their way with me, I thought I looked like a transvestite but didn’t want to insult their work so I left it on.
