With the fast approaching fashion week, the short days included constantly tracking samples, yelling at TNT customer service while our packages were held in customs, fitting, styling, and watching a slew of ladies come in for casting. But to maintain the level of sanity and team spirit in the office we decided to hold a fashion week potluck. Everyone brought in their favorite dishes and I brought in my oh-so-secretive toffee treat. Though the potluck was not to start till lunch Yuki a.k.a the graphic designer with the veracious appetite insisted on eating the toffee treat as soon as she came in. Once she started she couldnâ€™t stop. By noon she had devoured a good handful so I had to intervene and slow her down. I warned her, â€œBE CAREFUL something bad may happen!â€ By late afternoon and about 20 toffee treats later I could hear her yelling in the back office.Â Startled by her sudden outburst we all asked her what happened. She sadly mopped that her GIGANTIC filling fell out while eating a toffee treat! A harsh lesson learned, but a memorable fashion week moment for the rest of the staff.
Yuki with the very scary filling.
