A Slice of Humble Pie

Bonjour girls!
The universe works in mysterious ways!  Remember Lorena?  The terrible intern at X Magazine who made my summer a living hell? Well I saw her yesterday and it is true what they say, revenge is a dish best served cold!  I was doing a little Christmas Shopping in the Marais and who do I run into working at a shop?  Lorena!  She didn't even try to hide the look of horror on her face when I walked in and she was especially frigid when I went over to say hello.

I am not sure if I told you, but after I quit X Mag, Lorena was fired for being so terrible to me.  She got the axe two days later!  Needless to say, she blames me for all her ensuing trouble!  With a forced smile plastered to her face, Lorena struggled through meaningless small talk and then congratulated me on my fabulous new job at Vogue!  I believe "Must be nice!" were her exact words.  But here is the problem...  Since when do I work at Vogue?  She must have gotten her rumors crossed but I didn't correct her.  It was just too funny!

I left the store and called another X intern who informed me that after I left so suddenly a rumor started that I had been hired by the American Vogue Paris bureau.  No one thought to follow up or confirm this rumor, so months later it is still circulating.  Apparently, I am an inspiration to the newest generation of X interns.  Everyone wants to be like the girl who interned at X Magazine then left to work at Vogue!

Well, Lorena may one day learn the truth, but until then, I will always cherish the day that Lorena choked down that piece of humble pie!

Bisous xx Ophelia
