The woman in the booth next to me says she’s going to be on the cover of Vanity Fair soon.
Her friend seems supportive, but a tad leery. She’s not concerned.
“I”m hiring a publicist and figuring out my brand.”
She uses air quotes whenever she mentions her “brand,” and although she’s not sure what her “brand” is, she knows it’s cool, hip, and classic. But her “brand is also very “now,” which is tough, because “these days it’s all about the future, and nobody knows the future.”
I don’t catch her name, but I’m not concerned. I read Vanity Fair, so I know I’ll see her and her “brand” again someday soon.
