I'm a cartoon character.

Today, I did more training. With some different people but for the same client.
I discovered, to my great dismay, that everyone who works for this client is just downright rude.

I was constantly interrupted by the people I was attempting to teach - and these were interruptions that had absolutely nothing to do with the subject - sometime they would just talk amoung themselves about whatever, and I had to ask them to focus several time.

It was a very harrying day.

When I was getting ready to walk back to the hotel, I made a stop in the ladies room to wash my hands and brush my hair.

There were two other women 'freshening up' at the same time - I saw them - perfectly coiffed hair, mucho makeup, trim little wool skirt and jacket kinda suits and highheeled shoes, and I thought, gee, those older women look nice.

Then I looked at my more funky-looking self in the mirror - I could see both women via the same mirror - and I realized that I look like a cartoon next to those women.

I also suddenly realized that chances are, I am older than the two of them.

It was just kinda odd, but my features are plain, and I don't use make up, so I'm a pretty boring looking woman. And they kinda looked like graying Barbie Dolls.
