Let's skip 6/9 since, looking back, I have decided that day's request was just lame. Run of the mill and hardly blogworthy. Basically, asked someone something logistical and got an answer. Amazing.
On Thursday, June 10, I asked for something pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I asked our office intern if she would please read Ask For It, the second book by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever, after Women Don't Ask (the book that sparked my interest asking.)
I would have suggested starting with the latter, but I gave my only copy to La Sorella. I had Ask For It lying around the office, and I really wanted the intern, who will be pseudonymized as soon as the right name dawns on me, to read it.
This is how I worded the assignment: "Can you please read Ask For It, internalize it, live your life that way? And make sure you read it at a cafe or somewhere where you can enjoy this perfect summer afternoon?"
I hope you will, too! That book has some wonderful practical advice. More here: AskForIt.org.
Thanks to Tee for the link to that cartoon! I have some thoughts about it, which I'll save for a separate post. But first...
