When I saw the email from Nancy inviting me to join a teleconference I read it twice to make sure that it was meant for me. I emailed back like it was and she replied positively. I breathed a sigh of relief that she hadn’t accidently included my email address.
You know how I’m always ahead of time [cough, cough], organized [cough, cough], and have all my ducks in line [cough, cough, cough]. So it was at teleconference time.
It went like this: Open Twitter…Other ladies are already in…Pull up instructions…Pull up page…Safari doesn’t have Java…IE is bonkers and won’t let me paste url…Put shoes on 2 kids…Run for laptop…Put coats on 2 kids…See on Twitter that teleconference is starting…Manually type url into browser on laptop….Threaten the kids so they stay outside…Type in password…Run upstairs for phone with mute…
I’m in! I have sound!
Put on mute and speaker phone…Realize I missed the spiel but can hear the questions…Marvel at seeing the person talk via the webcam…Wipe nose, tie shoe, zip coat then push children back out the door…Twitter away…Get hungry for ice cream…Listen to the other bloggers ask questions…Say hello to husband who just got home…Twitter some more…Thank Nancy for the wonderful opportunity…Hang up phone…Find husband and bounce around telling him all about my first teleconference.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, was how I found out about Haagen-Daz five. I’m giving away a coupon for a free carton of their ice cream in my previous post.
Did you ever take part in a teleconference?
