Today is my very first official radio interview. I've been interviewed by press, yes - but not live radio. No opportunity for edits! Or long pauses - or a lot of 'uhhhhhhhhs' between sentences. And what happens if I get a phone call and the 'call waiting' clicks on in the middle of the host, Julie Isphording, asking me a question and I don't fully get it?
Oh My - so many things to be neurotic about. My husband assured me that no one was going to call me and interrupt my 15 minutes of fame with a call-waiting beep. How does he know?!
Just to play it safe, I'm going to send an email to the most likely suspects - like my mother who always calls and says, "I really don't like calling you. It's always the wrong time." Well - Mom - this time you'd be right. And maybe the most unlikely suspects, like my son!!!
And theoretically, I believe if I tell people DO NOT CALL ME, even if they weren't thinking about it, now they will and might call. You know, like if I tell you, "Don't picture a pink elephant," you immediately do.
Well, I'll say this. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be obsessing over something so wonderful! Imagine. I have a radio interview this afternoon!
