Do you ever get tired of yourself? Like enough, stop talking self. That's how I feel today so I've invited a guest blogger. (All the cool bloggers do it) I found him down the hall here at KFI. His name is Adam. I think he's like 19 and he's a producer. I like scaring him with loud noises. So herrrrrrrre's Adam:
A few weeks ago, I was guest-producing The Bill Carroll Show, with the world-famous Mo’Kelly filling in for Bill Carroll. One thing led to another, and I told Mo a story about a young woman betraying my confidence and reading my journal. Shannon, who was listening in her car, found this story amusing—particularly the part where the girl and I ended our relationship—and has since mentioned me having a journal in every conversation we’ve had. She’s very supportive of my writing endeavors.
Today she walked by the office I was sitting in and made (what she later described as) a “secret monster noise.” I was terrified, mostly because I thought it was the mild-mannered Tim Conway Jr. Show Executive Producer Mystie Heckler, who is approximately the same height and also has blonde hair. Also amused by this, Shannon invited me to write about my day on her blog.
I confused the Mystie and Shannon, you see, because my contacts fell out and I cannot see well. (One contact became unbearable after being scratched, and the other fell out later. Quite the double whammy!) Being lazy, I didn’t bring my glasses with me to work. My surprisingly terrible vision—I haven’t gone without corrective lenses in years—has left me dizzy, nauseous and a little confused, since figures in the hallway are just blurs now. To ease the pain, Shannon offered me her blog to vent about my lost vision. Now knowing that millions of people will read this—and not just my ex-girlfriend—the sadness of losing my 20/20-corrected vision has been washed away and replaced with newfound fame.
What I’m really saying is that Shannon is the best. If I don’t accidentally walk into oncoming traffic, I hope to guest-blog again in the future.
