Nightmare OTD

A telephone solicitor calls. "Mrs. Gold?" she asks.

I reply, "Hold on," and hand the phone over to my friend Lee Gold.

"Hello Lynn," the solicitor starts. Lee interrupts her.

"Hold on, I'm not Lynn," she replies. "I'll get her." She hands the phone back to me.

The phone solicitor starts. "Mrs. Gold?"

I reply, "I'm not 'Mrs.' Gold. Hold on," and hand the phone back to Lee.

Repeat scenario until I wake up.

Here we go again

Warren has Yet Another Neurosurgeon Appointment today. This one is in Sacramento, over two hours by car in good traffic.

We're both media-hounds. A year ago we were both working at the radio station, but neither was wanted for the 9/11 coverage. When something like that happens and you work in broadcasting, you soooo want to be where something is going on. To be excluded from the coverage because "the place is already overcrowded" sucks.

He's been flipping the dial in the kitchen this morning. He was even listening to Spanish radio (the Mexican-run stations) to see what they had to say (we both understand enough Spanish to get the gist of it). Everywhere is 9/11. I understand remembering and all that, but I agree with everyone else about the "jingoism masking itself as patriotism."
