Kiss Me...Er...Don't

Big meeting tonight.

Alas, also big lunch today for co-worker's birthday. Middle Eastern restaurant. Big chicken schawarma salad, bigger than my head and shoulders. Full of onion and radish and cucumber and parsley and spicy chicken (mmmm...orgasmic, really).

Now, the question is:

At big meeting tonight, with breath being all stinky, do I:

a) Decline to speak and only send written notes to the podium?
2) Speak only at podium, into microphone, but not face-to-face to board members?
iii) Greet each board member beforehand with hearty handshake in a modicum of personal space, lean in to them, and cheerfully say, "Hhhhiii, hhhhhhhowww niiiiice tooooo seeeeeee yooouuuuuuu!" I sit weighing repulsion in one hand and a dozen boxes of Altoids in the other...which one should I choose? What would YOU do?

Let the breath flow, my friend! It's natural!

And it could prevent the creepy "Why are you still touching me, CEO?"

Breathe all over 'em. Give the fuckers something to blog about when THEY get home. 8-)

Once I got to the meeting, I realized that one of the board members had been at the SAME RESTAURANT as me, so he probably had stinky breath too...a stinkathon of a meeting! Woo-hoo!
