No Go-Go For You Girl

The Microsoft World Wide Conference was hosting a reception for their partners featuring that classic band, The Go-Go’s. Because my husband is a “preferred partner”, he had guest passes to all conference events. I put on a dress, and off we went-went.

We arrived at the event to find an actual red carpet lined with what by all accounts was a hired cheering section. As we watched, a group of clearly not rock stars got of a bus and were enthusiastically applauded as they entered the building. “Whom are they cheering for?” I asked my husband, not trusting the entire set up. “They’re cheering for us, honey!” he replied, and took my hand and led me down the red carpet. We smiled and waved to the enthusiastic crowd and proceeded to the party.

Suddenly, a hand clamped down on my shoulder. “I’m sorry ma’am,” an official looking woman with a very large badge and a walkie-talkie said, “This is strictly a no guest event”, and escorted me back down the red carpet and out of the building.

Of course I smiled and waved at my loyal fans the entire way out.
