girlfriday: Have a good one!

I said that today to the driver of the Dodge Ram. Shucks, I'm just one of the guys.

"Have a good one." That's what half my clients and vendors hear. That, and, "Take it easy!"

The rest know me as a "Take care" kinda gal. These I know better than others. Chances are good that I know something about their lives that would warrant a "I hope your son feels better soon" or "Send me a postcard!"

A handful of them get a sophisticated "talk soon." Those conversations are short and to the point. There is no messing around with "talk soon"-ers.

A girlfriday must be elegant, down-to-earth, professional, light-hearted, encouraging, firm, friendly, respectful, knowledgeable, simple.

And she must know when to be which.*

*She fails sometimes. Forgive her.
