Mariah had assumed that they would step into a more private conference area. This was way too private of a room for a discussion over to-do items, even if the current campaign had to do with further extending the reach of the company's new medical line. They could have stayed in Britta's office, couldn't they? A foreboding wave of nausea gathered in her belly. Just what did Britta have in mind?
“Let me see what's still on your list,” Britta said.
Mariah handed over her clipboard. Britta took one glance, then set it down on the kitchenette counter before opening a drawer and extracting a couple of items, including what looked like doctor's headbands with much shorter straps.
“I'd like to product test these,” Britta said, handing the mini-headbands over. “Wear them on your wrists so that the discs face out and are over your pulse.”
Mariah inspected the product, which was heavier than she expected. The straps were about two inches wide and felt and smelled like leather. Attached to each strap was a thick circular metal disc with a flat surface that accounted for the weight. She secured each strap to her wrists and looked up at Britta expectantly.
Britta walked her over to an armchair near the coffee table and padded the back of the chair. “Sit and rest your arms so that the discs face the ones built into the chair.”
At first glance the armchair looked like any other, except the wooden arms did have circular discs the same size as the ones she had on her wrists. Unlike the flat surface found on the discs strapped to her wrists, the built-in discs in the chair had a depression in the center and a black ring outside of it. Mariah sat down on the leather cushion and positioned her wrists in place.
“Keep them there,” Britta said. “For this exercise, I'll need to blindfold you as well. No objections?”
Mariah swallowed, the feeling of dread rising in her stomach. Just what kind of product testing was this?
