The Gap...generations, not the store

Today:

"Hi, this is Risa, The ParTea Planner returning your call."

"Oh hi! Thanks for calling me back, how are you? "

"Well, to be honest I have caught my son's cold so you'll have to excuse the Brenda Vaccaro voice. "

Silence. Obviously the caller doesn't know who she is.

"Sooooo....how can I help you out with your tea party?"

*****************

A few months ago when I was planning the Mary Poppins party:

"Good afternoon, XYZ Prop Company. This is Ashley, how may I help you?"

"Hi Ashley, this is The ParTea Planner and I need to rent an ice cream parlor prop that will make the space look like you are in a Farrell's."

Silence.

"Ashley, do you know what Farrell's is?"

"Uhm. Like. No."


Sigh.
Man do I feel old.

P.S. This is the final product of my vision:

Shabby knows. About Farrell's that is! I canNOT believe they are back!! Oh, I hope, I hope we get one too. It isn't just the ice cream...it is the whole 1900's experience with the drum and sparklers...I'm so glad you told us :) Okay what about the Magic Pan restaurants? (Crepes)
