I know, I know, enough already with the Food Friday on a Tuesday. Though if I was smart I would have just refrained from posting for a few more days and it would have been Friday again.
And I can’t say I’ve got much for you today, since I am actually being rather productive in other sectors of my life, YOUR LOSS, but I did get to interview this perfectly charming Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian yesterday. After giving me tons of great quotes he concluded our interview by saying, “Now let me ask YOU a question.”
Me (brightly): “Of course!”
(oh god, please don’t ask if I read Truman… please don’t ask if I read John Adams)
Famous Author (also well known for his movie voice overs and narrations): “Have you ever done any acting or voiceover work? Because your voice is just perfect for it.”
Me (slightly higher pitch now): “Really?”
Famous Author: “Yes, your tone and style are just right. Have you done any acting? Where are you from?”
Me (squeaking now in high-pitched nervous tones that only dogs can hear): “No acting and New York, but I hope you can’t tell. That I’m from New York, I mean. Not the part about the acting. Which I haven’t done.”
Famous Author (now completely bored with me and this conversation): “Yes, well, I recommend you look into it. Have a good day.”
Is that like someone telling you that you have a perfect face for radio? Maybe so, but I’ll just take the compliment and run with it.
