How do you turn a mom into a complete idiot? You take one weekend with one sick child, 1 well child, and make that mom sleep deprived. You add in a Monday with only half a day of school and you get a mom who’s functioning, reasoning and thinking skills are drastically altered. Temporarily, of course, but until said mom gets some much needed sleep, said mom is going to do something really stupid.
And I did. Big Time. I had a phone meeting Monday afternoon with a potential sponsor for the BlogHer Conference. I was really excited about it. It was with (seed)+ and I had already reviewed their products and liked them. I would have loved to promote their products.
I thought the phone call went great. There was a moment when I thought they might have been unhappy that I said that my children thought they were eating junk food when consuming their product, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t until last night, when I played the conversation back in my head, that I realized what I said and what I was talking about.
I wasn’t talking about their product. I was talking about a different product. A food product. Their products are lotions, bar soap, and bar shampoo. Can you say “You totally blew it?” I knew who I was talking to, but for some reason, my mind took me to a different company and product. I know it was because I was sleep deprived. Unfortunately for me, that isn’t going to cut it.
What company is going to take a chance on a person that has done that? A very understanding company, perhaps? Do me a favor, let me know that I am not alone here. Tell me about something really stupid you have done, because you were sleep deprived. Don’t be shy, I know you have at least one story you can share.
