I punted the $33 workshop on Beyond “The Secret” last night, but went to the Philosophy Meetup tonight, where we all dismissed “The Secret” as selfish pap, opium for the masses.
There were 4 women, 2 men and me.
Somehow, we got talking about assumptions people make about us.
The smart gal, who is taking time before grad school and is teaching Existentialism at the local learning annex shared.
“Well, people often assume that because I am blonde, I don’t actually think,” she said. “I was co-presenting and the woman who I had shared e-mails with said ‘Gosh, after your writing, I didn’t expect you to be blonde.”
“You might not believe this, but many times when people firstsee me, they expect me to be challenging,” I said.
She looked at me and laughed, along with other women at the table.
