At the end of a telephone conversation this afternoon, the caller asks me, "Do you know you have a perfect voice for a radio broadcaster? Has anyone ever told you that? You have a career in radio."
I modestly explained that I have the handsome and rugged good looks for Hollywood.
I actually was on the radio a few times. Our local Top 40 loved to prank us through the drive thru but if we played along we usually got good swag. I let the prize guy set up on the corner of my lot more than a few times which helped my morning business out. He was generally good for Portland Trailblazer tickets.
"He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?" Jeremiah 22:16
I don't know if this is irony, but I've heard my voice on TV interviews and watching archived broadcasts of public hearings posted on the interwebs. I don't think my voice is that good. Also, I'm not the best speaker in the world either in casual conversations or public presentations. Just average in my opinion. Maybe the caller was flirting with me.
I should have DD from the hot tub last night to verify my observations and opinion. Then again, I'm confident the voice and spoken word are altered by the consumption of alcohol so that might not be a good gauge.
EDIT: *Don't think thread split.*
Tried the Dunkin Donuts brownie batter donut. Not that bad. I would have it again but I won't have it again because it was sugar filled with sugar topped with sugar.
They're going to show Curb Your Enthusiasm on tvland. How is that going to work? They're going to have to omit entire episodes, like Beloved Cunt.
