It's now after 8 am.
I got up at 4 to do a radio interview that never happened -due to technical difficulties and a major communication break down. Despite ALL the ways people can contact me, no one has.
I'm a little tired and cranky today.
But just for fun - can you all imagine what an interview during the day with me, would be like... reality radio!
I can't talk on the phone for anything over five minutes without hearing this:
Squealer. "Can I go next door?" for the fifth time.
me. "Not now, I'm on the phone."
Squealer. "Why not?"
Me: pointing to phone and gesturing she should go away. While trying to listen.
Breezy. "Can you watch me go toilet?"
Me: "You can go by yourself." Gesturing to the phone.
Breezy. Loudly. "Watch me! I need to go now."
Moving to the bathroom. Then the washing of hands.
Breezy. "Squealer smells she's pooped her pants."
Squealer. Scream. Shriek. Slamming of bathroom door.
Breezy screaming at Squealer because Squealer hit her.
Squealer refusing to leave the room.
Me leaving room.
Squealer following me yelling about a spider that's not even there.
At that point I would lock my door but sadly it's not sound proof.
This is what we have to look forward too, if I ever hear from the interviewer and the rescheduling happens. It'll be well worth listening in for!
Now while I was up waiting for the interview that didn't happen I discovered a police officer was shot this morning at 4:15 am. All I know is that he is a young officer. Here's hoping he recovers well. I can't voice my disgust at people who shoot cops because the words I need have not been invented yet.
