I never thought that my professional undoing would be brought about by a silver dildo, but here we all are.
I guess it proves that life always has a way of screwing you over, but having promotional sex toys in the mix can certainly push the process along.
Last week I headed over to Foxtel for a sit down with the cast of The Real Housewives of Sydney.
As far as interviews go, I knew this one was set to be a doozy. Not only were we interviewing seven outspoken personalities all at once, but we had to do it in a way that would result in some good, juicy content.
Preferably without anyone losing a limb in the process.
So the video team and I put our heads together and came up with a plan of attack.
We cooked up a loose, quiz style game called "Truth or Share" in which the ladies would be randomly asked a series of questions from a stack of cards and they would have the chance to share their own stories OR spill the truth on someone else.
Fun, visual and quirky, what could possibly go wrong?
That's when the silver dildo appeared and ruined my life.

Why was there a silver sex toy lying around on my desk, I hear you ask? Well, the Mamamia team had been sent a whole box of Fifty Shades Darker themed goodies that we had planned to use for an instructional and not at all inappropriate video.
But before you could say "who wants to test the nipple clamps?" a sex toy starved Ninja appeared within our sparkly office in the dead of night and stole the whole lot.
