So over in the corner I don't get many fringe benefits. I work with mostly smart people. Only thing is very few of them are attractive. It's rare you meet a young attractive black woman in IT.
So imagine my surprise when I'm sitting in another vendor meeting and this beautiful sales rep walks in from IBM. A funny thing happens when you see a young black woman in IT, you exchange eye contact quickly forget why your there and think how can I slip her my number. It's a completely instinctive thing. I can only think she sees few young black men in her travels because she seemed just as shocked to see me sitting in the room. I can imagine her day consists of sitting in meeting after meeting with middle aged white men.
There I was sitting across from this woman trying not to stare. I kept thinking how I wish I had my business cards to hand her. Yet still trying to focus on what I'm getting paid to do. After all this was a business meeting. I crack a couple jokes, say "bless you" when she sneezes and conduct myself in a normal manner. I decide to send my girl a text during the power point presentation. I needed the reminder. Then she hands out HER business card. Damn I could just email her when I get back to my desk. My co-works can't clown me if they never know right? I know she will remember me. What are the odds I'ma see her again?
Anyway we shake hands exchange pleasantries and I head back to my desk. My co-worker mentions how she was cute, I agree. I was waiting for them to make a joke how I should have tried to holla. It never came, Dave dodges another bullet. Did I mention I stood next to the baddest chick on the train friday? we rode all the way to my stop and she parked 3 cars from me. 3 CARS!!! she was in a white 5 series BMW, This kinda stuff happens to me when I'm being good. God is funny like that.
