This morning I did an interview on a Miami talk radio station. This one was actually *live* live. I was right there, listening to the host do the weather, and then he says "we have with us [my name] from [my employer] to talk about people who have trouble sleeping." I was like, hey, that's me! It was pretty cool. Of course, I had no idea of the answer to the first question he asked, so I used the clever interviewee technique of answering a sort of related question. (How many people in the United States suffer from chronic insomnia? I have NO IDEA.)
It gave me new respect for talk radio hosts. That guy is right there on the air for hours, and he talks to random people like me who never have to give interviews, and he has no idea if the next one on the line is a complete dud. I wonder what he would have done if I'd been like, yup. nope. uh-huh. I dunno. mebbe.
In other news, this morning I heard helicopters near my house, and I turned on the TV, and there was an overturned truck a mile away! It was a big dump truck carrying rock salt. Well, it was carrying rock salt, until it took the U-turn a little wide and dumped its rock salt across the road. It certainly changed my commuting plans for the morning.
