This morning I took my kids into the dr for their 3 month check up. I have two 13 pounders. They are both 25 and a half inches long. My gosh, they are getting so big. Everyone is healthy, thriving, and happy. All of the shots are up to date and we no longer need the dietician weekly. They do want her to come by once a month and do weights so I told her see you in 29 days Lol I’ve had enough arguing why I use vegan formula.
I ate lunch at my desk because I got back to work a little later than I expected. Then I had the Fox news people come in and do an interview. I thought we had said next Friday and I’m dang sure I did but they wanted something right now. I guess there’s some big rush to get me on the air. Alright.
So I sat there for about half hour while they set up all of this stuff. I wanted to play with all of it. I asked questions and kept to myself. I texted my lawyer get your old butt over here now, tv crew here. He rushed right over and sat close by out of camera range. He said any question he felt I should not answer he would just interrupt and say No Comment. There were 4 he vetoed. Not going to discuss those. The lady was very polite and friendly. She was nervous. I was nervous. And I found out I really don’t like having a camera shoved in my face. I don’t like sitting there. I don’t like the big light things or the big wing? What is that called? It’s to help the lighting. I don’t like it. And I really don’t like being hooked into some microphone pack thing.
The questioning I was fine with. I was ready. I kept my answers short and to the point. I was honest. I told my story. I declined to give a shoutout to either of my books because that was too nerdy and if people want to find them, they will. I didn’t want to be one of those guys holding up my book and saying GO BUY THIS. I also declined to have them come to my home and film my kids. Instead we had Sarah Facetime me with them off camera to show the reporter to verify I have them. Isn’t that the dumbest thing in the world? Who on Earth doesn’t believe I don’t have twins? Are ya’ll that stupid? Really? Anyone that has been talking to me the past 3 months would tell you because they are very loud and present in my life. That’s just offensive. Ya’ll should be ashamed for even suggesting that one.
What was only going to be an hour took 2 hours and 45 minutes because her list of 20 questions all had follow ups and follow ups to the follow ups. She said I was very interesting to talk to and my story had her on my blog for days researching it. She was surprised at how polite I was. She said online I am labeled some very bad words and she found me to be nothing like what I was described as. She asked to take photos with me. I said only if my lawyer can be in there too. He hates that Lol She also asked that I not divulge the questions. I told her I did not sign anything and would not agree to any stipulations so good luck trying to boss me Lol She laughed and said she realizes she will be making my blog sometime soon and couldn’t wait to see what I said.
So hello, Fox news lady. Nice meeting you today. Hope you like that Naked Juice I told you about. Good luck on your event this weekend.
I have no idea when my interview will air. My guess is all of you will know long before I do because I know I will be hearing about it Lol That’s what always happens.
It was not a fun experience. It was interesting.
The only question I have is, are we all over this by now? Am I really worth all of this?
