Itís probably just as well that Iím always slightly sleep-deprived at these marathon meetings. I have yet to acquire my bossí twin strengths of traveling without fatigue and sleeping on planes (there may be a connection here). But lack of sleep allows the meetings to blur by, faster than they would if I were alert. The words wash over me; I am on auto-pilot, asking the right questions, laughing in the right places, being serious when needed. I am dazzled by the menís perfect manicures, their monogrammed cuffs, their stylish cufflinks. My thoughts run in the background, going somewhere else.
