tonight i gave a talk. that makes me sound important. all i really did was report to the kansas city wellesley club about what i saw and did at the alumnae leadership council two weekends back. but apparently me regaling them with tales of my exploits worked, because i got rave reviews from across the board. in addition, i met several very cool alumnae, and had some good snacks. being around all these powerful ladies always reminds me of what a strong network we have of smart women who may or may not secretly rule the country. ignore the fact that it took me three tries driving by to find the house where i was supposed to go. i blame it on the boy, who was distracting me on the phone. i can totally read house numbers.
