The #BBSummit12 conference is over and short of some WiFi problems on the hotel’s end, I think it went really well. I will probably do some sort of mini-recap of my favorite moments at the conference, but for now here is a recap of what happened when I went upstairs to the hotel room I was sharing with Liz in between #BBSummit12 and the after party*.
*I let myself into the room. Liz has already freshened up.*
Liz: “Hi! You’re done! Yay!” *hugs me*
Me: “I know! Yay!”
Liz: “it went well!”
Me: “You think?”
Liz: “Yes! Of course!”
*I start to get teary-eyed*
Me: “I’m very emotional right now!”
*Liz touches my arm* “Are you okay?”
Me: “Yes, I’m fine! I’m JUST. SO. TIRED. And I have to decide about my shoes. My feet are so swollen that I’m afraid to take off my shoes from today because I don’t know if I’d get them back on for the party.”
Liz: “Just wear your flip-flops! Nobody cares!”
Me: *teary* “But I never had time to get a pedicure and my feet look bad and…”
Liz: “Really! Nobody cares! Just be comfortable!”
Me: “I don’t know. Should I? Maybe I will. But I want to look nice! And (very dramatic) I can’t make these kinds of decisions right nowwwwww!”
*Liz pats my shoulder* “Sounds like you need some quiet time. Why don’t I go on downstairs, and you just stay here and be by yourself for a while?”
Me: “Sniff sniff…okayyyyy…”
An hour later, I was whooping it up with Liz and other friends at the after party, wearing my Old Navy flip-flops. Being by myself was just what I needed to recharge. Thanks, Liz!
*Please note that this is actually the gist of the conversation rather than a 100% accurate retelling due to the level of my brain fry at that moment as well as me writing this on three and a half hours of sleep, due to a post-after party conversation with Liz that lasted until 1:59 a.m. and my inability to sleep much past 5:30 a.m.
