How the mighty can fall!

When I started my public relations business more than 20 years ago, I shared an office in a palatial building that housed a very plush advertising agency. After about 6 months, I moved to a cute 130 year old bakery that was situated at the rear of a carpark. It was delightful, and a wonderful place in which to work, especially as it was a single room over two levels and I had the entire 60 squares metres to myself.

Clients adored it

My son, Nick, who was 5 at the time, occasionally used to visit me in both locations.

You can therefore imagine my horror when I went to a parents’ night at his kindergarten.

Initially I wondered why other parents were looking at me strangely, until I saw the work he had displayed hanging on the wall. It was about his family, and in essence said:

“My sister is 6 years older than me and is very nice.

“My mother is a good cook and makes cakes.

“My father used to work for an a big advertising agency, but now he works in a carpark.”

Yeah….even the mighty can fall from grace – in a child’s eyes!

How the mighty can fall!
