AKA National Girl Friday Day

Today is our day ladies (and gentlemen)! It’s the one-day of the year that our bosses feign love and adoration for their right hand people. Okay, so some of us are luckier than others and are appreciated throughout the year.

My wish for you, my fair friend, is a lovely day where your inbox is miraculously empty, your desk is spotless, the phones are quiet, and stupid comments are kept to a minimum. I don’t think that’s too much to ask!

Since I can’t be with you to make your day special, let’s pretend! Oh how I love my fictional world!

We’d start the day at 10 AM not 8 AM—because we need our beauty sleep! After we were sufficiently pampered by with a massage, facial, mani/pedi and had our hair and makeup done, we’d meet for lunch! Our lovely lunch would be at some swanky place like Hotel Gansevoort in New York City. We’d sit poolside and chat about our latest dalliances with important people and our escapades to chic places. After we tired of the magnificent views and hot waiters, we’d go shopping! We’d hit the requisite places like Bloomingdales in SoHo, Louis Vuitton, and Sephora. On our way to Pastis for our late afternoon cappuccino, we’d hang out with Helena (Christensen that is—we’re on a first-names basis) at her store Butik and try on some vintage Danish dresses. After rubbing elbows with the tragically hip we’d gather up our spoils and head back to the hotel for cocktails! Martinis in hues of the rainbow and precious bite-sized foods would float past us on trays and we could sample each and every one. We’d remain only buzzed and giddy, never crossing the line into dramatically drunk. Every fabulous Superheroine would join us at the party! Sometime around 4 AM we would stumble into our plush beds and sleep the deep slumber of women who have the day off from work.

That’s my version of the perfect Administrative Professionals Day.  I love it, no matter how unrealistic.  Cheers!

    Um…I had five fillings and no mention of Administrative Professionals Day at work? But then, I only have seven more days of being an administrative professional (yay) so that’s okay.

    Thank you for the wonderful day. I am still recovering from all of the fun!

    One nice thing about today at least: I bought the finance department and myself Starbucks with the company credit card! Oh the joys of being the administrative assistant to the senior boss man!
