On a conference call a few weeks ago, a colleague spoke to me with such a tone of disrespect, I nearly lost it. But since losing it isn’t exactly my style, especially in the workplace, I retaliated the only way I knew how: dramatic pause, overly calm but pointed reply, mute button so I could quietly mutter obscenities, followed by an angry stomp through the atrium for a cup of soothing Starbucks coffee.
It wasn’t enough. Not nearly.
That’s when I texted Katy.
“Still up for some Spa Day action?”
She said she was. Enthusiastically.
So that’s what we’ll be getting into tomorrow at Aveda. If you don’t have a shrink—or even if you do—sometimes you just need to pay someone to be nice to you while they cover you in some strange Caribbean body treatment.
