The Pretty AE is from Massachusetts. That is relevant because, while we were at the local watching the Pats – Colts game this evening, I brought up a friend who works at a high-profile Boston agency and was talking to me about some open positions.
She perked up at the suggestion of going to Boston and, since it would solve some of the “small agency dating” and “I hooked up with her friend who also works at the agency” issues, it seems like a no-brainer for me to go as well.
But I really like where I work.
I think that I like her more.
And I wonder why I am thinking about all of these hypotheticals when, with the state that my so-called book is in, I am not all that likely to get the job at the high-profile Boston agency anyway. And even if I did, I would be sure to blow the opportunity (with the Pretty AE).
I go out with her all the time and, despite comments from loyal readers in support of my quest, I am less likely to close the deal than our new business team (it has been a long year on that front, though we have had organic growth so I still feel good about my bonus…and that, sadly, is what it’s all about this time of year).
She looked so good tonight…
