Today I left for an Open House hungry. Really hungry. Big mistake!
I had half an hour to grab food, wolf it down, shove signs in the ground and show up smiling at the front door. So it was fast food for me.
Normally, I'm pretty careful about what I eat. And it's mostly health, organic, lowish fat and mostly veggies. Well, being really hungry can help you make very bad food decisions. And I made one today.
I went through the drive-through at a big fast food chain. I ordered a chicken sandwich, rings and a chocolate shake. And I inhaled it! It tasted fabulous. And then about half an hour into the Open, I crashed!
I had no energy. None! Forget the fun and schmoozing with all of the people who came through. I just wanted a nap! Head on a pillow snooze!
Even though a lot of people came through, it felt like a wasted afternoon. While there were some folks who like the place, I didn't connect with a single person! That's not like me!
So I've learned my lesson! Next time I do an Open, I am going to eat a big salad with maybe a little salmon and a light vinegrette dressing.
They say you are what you eat. Geeze, I hope not!
