I think I might have been exaggerating just a touch, dudes, when I said I wasn’t nervous at all about being interviewed on television for a segment on A Dude’s Guide to Babies.
I might be a touch nervous. Slightly anxious. Maybe a bit shaky. Possibly terrified beyond all capacity of rational thought. Or that last one might have been me thinking of a giant Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man. I’m sort of confused right now.
It’s odd, really. I mean, I’ve never been one to be scared of getting up and talking to people. Normally you have to pry the microphone out of my Heston Hands, or else try and get it off my twitching body after getting stun gunned. This time, though. . .
Maybe it’s because I won’t be the one in charge. Someone else will be asking the questions and I’m going to have to sit there, try and look semi-intelligent and answer the questions while trying to be appealing.
I’ve always said, as a radio guest, I’ve got a great face for working in newspapers. Now I’m supposed to come around from behind the notebook and start talking to people like it was no big deal? And deal with Barry, who I’m worried will be having his first coronary live and on-air.
Yeah, I could rent out my intestinal butterflies by the ton and make a lot of money this way. Hmm, not a bad idea, that.
Well, moving on. Mr. DeMille? I’m ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille.
If you’re in the Charlotte area, why not give us a look? If you’ve got nothing better to do on Monday between 11 am and noon. We’re on WCNC’s Charlotte Today. (click on that there and you’ll go to the show’s website, where you can watch us squirm on your computer monitor.) WCNC is on channel 36 if you’re picking up the signal over the air and on channels 6, 120 and 1120 on Time-Warner Cable. It’s also on channel 36 if you’re getting cable through AT&T U-verse like, apparently, me and about three other people in the entire metropolitan area.
Welp, wish me luck today, dudes. I have a feeling we’re going to need it.
