Embarassing!

So I have to laugh at myself because today was one of those "blonde days" you could say. I work at a Marriott near DC by a very popular concert arena. I was at work today and a bunch of raggedy somewhat aged looking men with bad hair and torn up jeans were hanging out in my lobby. They kept asking me for this and that so I was put off by all of their demands. They wanted to know where the nearest Starbucks was and I was trying to give them directions when one guy caught a glimpse at my name tag and was like "oh your name is Melissa"....I smiled and then he said "Are you sweet"? I was like," what? Gross! Old men flirting with me." Anyways they kept talking about the band and all the equipment and stuff. I thought they were just a bunch of wanna bees with bad hair. After the guys left my front desk for like the 5th time I looked at my boss and said "I bet they can't even play and that they probably stink." My boss was like, "Melissa, that's not just some band that's the Allman Brothers". I was like get out! My husband loves them he downloaded a song called "Melissa" by them. All the sudden I figured out what they meant by their earlier comment about..."are you sweet?" Part of the song is sweet Melissa...I'm such a moron. When I told my husband he was cracking up. He said he was going to make me listen to the song "Melissa" everyday. Go ahead and laugh! Its ok! I am!

Have a great day!

Hi I just found your blog through Muriel's blog. That's hysterical about the band. Sounds like something I would do.

Haha! Hey Melissa. I have never heard of the Allman Brothers so no worried. I saw your comment on Tracy's blog and thought I would say hello. Blogging in great and I have one too...although my blog is nothing special at this point. I have no kids to brag about yet. Congrats on your son. I know I'm way late. Tracy told me about it a while ago. He is so cute. I think Tracy and I should make a little visit to see your cute kids. Well, try to enjoy the rest of the summer...if at all possible in this insane heat :)

That was a funny story. You know I would never have known either.

I'm with my sister, because I don't even know who the Allman Brothers are...that is pretty funny though.

Thanks for checking out my blog. I responded to your comment on my immigration article. Thanks for responding! Perhaps I was a little too one-sided in my entry. I will look at it and maybe rephrase a few things because I don't want to over generalize and come off like I don't know what I'm talking about. Have a great weekend :)
