Today I am filled with an almost overwhelming sense of dread. The cause of this feeling, is my first radio appearance.
I am going on the radio to promote the Children's Summer Reading program. I don't really see the point as this will be right after the morning news, and everyone I know turns to another station, but my boss said I had to go on the air (which is not something they mentioned in my job description). So I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I can only imagine how aweful I will feel tomorrow.
At least it will be early tomorrow, so that I can get it over with first thing. I have a statement all typed out that I am going to read, I know this will make for boring radio but I have never been on the radio and I am viewing it as an entirely new public platform with which to make an ass of myself. Sounding kind of boring is a whole lot better than the alternatives I can think of.
