One of the amazing things that Mike and I get to do in the course of our "work" is emcee really fun stuff! Tomorrow night we get to emcee (along with Jay Hendricks) the Downtown Midland Lighted Christmas Parade. We love doing these things in our community because we get to see and meet so many people, we have so much fun, AND it keeps us on our toes!!
Whenever we do a LIVE event there is always the possibility of making a really embarassing faux pas. I remember a few years ago, we were emceeing the parade with Jimmy Patterson and he said "Here come the Citizen's on Parole" instead of "Citizens on Patrol". We still laugh about that (because it wasn't our mistake).
After many, many years of doing a live morning show Mike and I have learned to be really careful when speaking publicly. But if we make a funny mistake (or a stupid one) we are generally forgiven because we are just a couple of clowns anyway. However, Jay Hendricks cannot be a clown because he has to remain credible as a "journalist". Frankly, we are surprised that the powers that be at CBS7 even allow him anywhere near us. We have been known to be a bad influence. Just sayin'!
Hopefully we will see all of you at the parade tomorrow night! We will be the clowns sitting by Jay Hendricks.
