In what will surely be counted many years from now as one of the clearest signs of the impending apocalypse, Barry and I are going to be on television.
And we won’t be standing in front of a sign showing our height or holding a placard with our names and inmate numbers up in front of us.
We’re actually going to be interviewed by willing participants on Charlotte Today, the local station’s continuation of NBC’s Today Show. The interview will run on Monday March 18, sometime between 11 am and noon. If you’re interested, you can go to this link and click on the bit there that offers to let you watch it streaming live.
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.
Anyway, you’ll want to tune in if only to see whether or not Barry and I manage to avoid a complete train wreck of an interview. I have this feeling that Barry is in very real danger of sitting there, staring at the camera and not actually talking for the entirety of the interview.
I worry that I, on the other hand, will talk far too much. See, I’ve got this completely annoying habit of talking too much, trying to make really bad jokes and then laughing hilariously at my own bad jokes whenever I get nervous. Guess who’s nervous about the interview?
We’re going to be talking about, and I know this comes as a shock to a lot of you, our book: A Dude’s Guide to Babies, which should be out on bookshelves everywhere by Friday, March 22.
Yeah, we’re a bit excited about the whole thing. Give it a look, won’t you? If you’re in Charlotte, watch the tube. If not, we’re on the computer. As if you could get away from us that easily, just by leaving town.
