I remember times long ago (about three years ago) with a wide smile on my face. I was younger and used to go to a club, sleep for two-three hours, then go to work with the first bus, at 5 a.m. I was enjoying such outings with the crazy girls I was living with quite often.
So in my madness, I thought I still had it in me. Therefore, when A said something about going to a club on Monday evening, I thought that was the perfect plan for me. After serious doubts such as “Why go out when I can sleep instead?” I finally ended up in Club A. Club A pretty much copies the Ogilvy mentality I’d been hearing about: if you get a good idea ever, grab on to it and keep using and overusing it! It was pretty much the same atmosphere and music I remembered from my first year in Bucharest. And indeed it works, as the club was pretty crowded on a Monday night.
Why in the world would someone go to a club on Mondays (one of A’s many hobbies, as I found out)? I did ask the question and the reply was pretty relevant: “I used to have a reason once, which I really do not remember now. But I keep going”. To such invincible reasons, who could say no?
So I went, not exactly my type of music, but I did forgive them for two Depeche Mode songs and a few others close to my heart like “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Doors”. Did I mention they played quite a few songs I used to wake up to as a kid, as my dad loved them so much he listened to them every morning? You do tend to feel younger when there are songs from before you became an idea.
Consequences of my Monday party? Well I could not wake up to go to school the next day and stoned myself with coffee at work. As usual, when tired, the day at work was pretty much awful. So, to celebrate such a day and feel better, I met Cris and Baty after work for a “healthy” dinner in McDonald’s and lots of laughter.
Conclusions we reached when we caught our breath, in laughter breaks:
1. If you work too much and don’t take care of yourself AND actually get successful, you will also turn into a whale.
2. If someone tells you that you cannot eat what you have just ordered, don’t force yourself to eat it all just to spite them.
3. Employees swear only when bosses do their job. If no one is swearing, then the boss should get worried.
As you can see, the conversation topics have no real connection, but it was fun catching up and just relaxing.
