I felt like a trophy last night and it was really flattering for my ego. We had a meeting with The Diocese for the annual funding campaign with members of the diocese and other members of church council all over the diocese. I'm in my twenties, I'm young, alive, feminine, happy and you know, it's not common for a parish those days to have an administrator that young, especially a women.
The two men from the diocese wouldn't believe me when I said " Hello, my name is No Nonsense girl and I'm on the church council of The Parish".
Them: Really? That's not possible
Me: Seriously, I am a member of the church council.
Them: But you are so...
so what? cute? sexy? hot?
I was elected in December and I've been in The Parish for a few years
Them: Wow, really, you are not kidding?
M: Well, you'll ask The Friendly Boss when he joins us, he'll tell you.
Then they just smiled...
Few seconds later, The Friendly Boss joined us and confirms to Mr. In charge of the finances at The Diocese that I am indeed a member of the church council. Just so you know, these 2 guys from The Diocese were very nice for the rest of the evening.
I guess they were just shocked to see a young hot woman on a council. I was not offended one second, it was very flattering. I did indeed feel like a trophy and it was good for my ego, you know... By the way, it's because members of church council are mostly way over their 60s and mostly male. I wasn't the only woman yesterday, I think we were 5 or 6. I told TFB when we were alone " I know why you wanted me to come tonight, it was to show me off to them eh? He just laughed and smiled.
So that's it. I'm leaving tomorrow morning to visit a friend and I'll be back on Friday in the evening. I can't leave longer, Mr.Cat is able to be independent and care for himself for 2 nights/3 days but more than that stresses him and me out.
I'm going to go for a walk this afternoon, it's going to relax me.
