... and probably never will. I had a very busy weekend and I think I am finally recovered. My job basically involves sitting in a chair and typing all day. Last weekend I went and helped my friend Jan in her booth at the Maine Quilts 2008 show. We were SO busy. By the end of the weekend I was sore in muscles I had forgotten I had and my feet were killing me. I had to go back to work to get some rest.
I really enjoyed it despite the way some people act. I know the customer is always supposed to be right, but there are some limits. There was a booth hop and participants were supposed to get their passports signed at each booth. No matter what we were doing or who we were helping, people who were only after the prize would shove their passports into our faces and say "Sign this". One woman put hers between my face and the credit card slip I was filling out. The one that took the cake though was the woman who put hers on a magazine, picked up one of our pens and SHOVED them into my stomach while I was talking on the phone. Can you imagine? Where did some people learn their manners? I did make her wait until I was done, but of course I didn't think of the perfect thing to say until much later. At the time I was basically speechless.
To thank us for our help Jan took us to see Mama Mia! It was a blast. I think some of the people in the theater had seen it a number of times because I kept hearing "I love this part".
Everyone around us was singing so I figured it was safe for me as well. I don't know if I could have not even if no one else was. I just would have been more quiet about it. :cD
One of our friends won a blue ribbon for this quilt. Congratulations Linda! It's beautiful.
