i made it through my very first lunch presentation, which is basically an hour-long product overview done by a local representative, who also brings free food (this last part being the attendance booster). my favorite point was when we had to introduce ourselves, and of course after hearing how accomplished and degreed everyone else at the table was i mumbled something like, “my name is halsted; i’m just the librarian!” all three of the presenters protested to my use of “just”, and one added, “you’re not just the librarian; you are the librarian!”
i liked that a whole lot.
everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and the food was good (portobello mushroom sandwich, mm), and no one hit me over the head with a trashcan. i deem that a success.
