well, i started my volunteer job the other day and was asked to stay for an opening lecture about the most recent exhibit. i didn’t get to really hear the lecture, though, instead i had to check the guests against the RSVP list.
the lecture, given by the director of the museum and the head curator, was exclusive to the most important donors.
that means, of course, that they were very chic and polished… or smarmy.
‘hi there. are you here for the opening lecture?’
‘why yes i am.’
‘welcome! can i take your name?’
‘can i take your name?’ wink.
and then i eyed the bar.
