I kept waiting for the make-up guy to start fussing over my head. I mean, I’d spent most of the morning shaving and buffing my hairless top so it would be nice and shiny. That way, the make-up guy would have something to do, since I, of course, and so astonishingly good looking that I would need no other enhancements.
I’m a giver that way. Always thinking of others.
Then I woke up and realized I was late to get to the studio so I could be interviewed on the local WCNC-TV’s Charlotte Today show with Barry. We managed to mention the name of the book, A Dude’s Guide to Babies, several times, watched as the hosts held up the book to the camera several more and generally had a good time.
And the make-up guy never showed. So watch out for the shine. It can be rather intimidating at first.
It went really, really well. Hosts Colleen Odegaard and Ramona Holloway welcomed us with warmth and enthusiasm, and the backstage crew did everything they could to put us at our ease. “Uncle Dude” Bob and Kelly, especially, were fantastic. We were given a nice space to sit down in the pre-interview room, just long enough for us to start laying the blame on each other in case it all went pear shaped. It didn’t
Barry and I knocked the interview out of the proverbial park and over the river running through it.
We were able to answer the questions with a minimum of fussing and stumbling and actually sounded relatively coherent. And that’s not just me saying that. We also have confirmation from relatively neutral sources who’ve seen the interview.
Speaking of which. . .
See? We didn’t do too badly.
Now we just need some people to show up when we’re at Park Road Books on April 7 at 2 pm to push copies of our book onto an unsuspecting public.
