Ola - Mexican for a day..

Every year for the past 25 years   the company I work  for in September  has the annual lady buyers lunch,  we  invite  all the  lady buyers from the companies we supply to,  and all the  ladies of our company are  invited  so that we  can mingle,  all the  guy account managers  are  invited  because  they are our waiters  for the  day..........  or  our  slaves  for the  day,  for  this  day  they fetch,  they carry, they pour our  drinks,   take  away our  dishes..........  and  yes  we  do abuse  them.
The  fun  part  is  that  every  year they  chose  a  theme,  which  ties  in  with the  show  that  is  being  presented  and  everyone  dresses  up  according  to the theme, it  is  great fun,  it  makes  us  very creative  and  my team  has  won  the  team  price so many times  I  really  cannot remember  ..... bragging.
We  have  been  everything,  from    Eyptian  goddess's,  to   witches, which  I  might  add  some people "insinuated"  that I was  in character  and  not  playing  a  roll,  it  is  sometimes  tough  to be the  one responsible  for collecting  the money,  to  those  I  can  help  I am  the  Eyptian  goddess and  to those  who  I  just  cannot  help,  I am  the  witch............
One  year  we  had  a  Spanish  theme,  and  we  all went  as  bull fighters.....

One  year  we had  a  60's  theme  and  we  all went  as  hippies...........

This  year  the  theme  was  around  the  world so  we  decided  to  go  as  Mexicans,

it  was  a  bit  scary that  some  of  us  looked  really  good  in  a  moustach ...............  the  food  was  good  the  show  was  great,  and  the  company  was  funny  what  a  great  way  to  spend  the  afternoon and  also  be  paid  for  it ..............
