…erm, well, not on the way to the Forum, but on the couch this afternoon. I was working away on my computer while both kids were napping and my phone rang with a 917 number I didn’t recognize. I admit, I swerved the call (not wanting to waste my precious 2 hours of naptime on a long-winded call with a telemarketer because I’m too polite to hang-up) and regretted that decision as soon as I listened to the voice mail.
The message was from a woman from the Rachael Ray Show! Sadly, though, she was not calling to talk about Fleurt: she was calling in response to a topic submission (hand-me-downs) I provided last week. I returned the call and we chatted for a bit. Actually, she asked a few questions and I tried to be witty and amusing while telling her about my kids wearing hand-me-downs.
She was kind and said that I have a ‘great personality’ (a nice thing to hear after being abused by my children for the past week during their fall break). No promises on a show on the topic of hand-me-downs, but if there ever is, we’ll be on the short list for a call – I think.
As soon as we hung-up I had a Homer Simpson moment. Doh! I couldn’t believe I didn’t mention Fleurt. Talked about a missed opportunity! A few hours later, long after naptime ended, I realized I HAD to call. I had to at least leave her a message while my name was still relatively fresh in her mind. So I did just that…one voice mail and (gasp!) a slightly stalker-ish email later and I feel better about the situation.
Of course, I would feel a lot better if I heard back from her. Will keep you posted.
