Most of my professional life was spent in the advertising industry. Almost 25 years, in fact.
There are a lot of weird people in the ad industry.
As a tender little sapling in “the biz,” I always worked for the wackiest of wack jobs and had the most bizarre experiences.
It’s one of the reasons my college BFF, Jen, who - over the phone, when I’d steal a moment of privacy behind the dark, closed door of a utility closet, I would whisper the latest “story you’re not gonna believe,” she would say to me, through tears of laughter and shock, “Oh my God, did you write this down? You have got to write a book someday - you couldn’t make this stuff up!”
Incidentally, it’s the reason I named my funny memoir, “You Should Write A Book, True Tales Of An Unstable Life.”
