Technically Thursday and technically you are on the show but calling in. So technically hundreds of people were in NY, NY while I was huddled in the corner of my local Savemore Market in Oakland, CA. Huddled with a phone that was handed over with the warning that it is really hard to hear. Huddled not trusting it's strength so staying near the front window near the rain and pushing my other ear in as hard as possible. Huddled hearing what was definitely Mo Racca and some other familiar voices including a guest host.
When it was my turn I was ready to say my occupation was GrilledCheezGuy and not caterer or chef or whatever I am supposed to say. And I did. And before I say what happened (or better you listen) let me that before my segment there just happened to be a lot of talk about cheese and sex and pizza (I think) that I wrote down a line I was ready to say. It was along the lines of "Cheese and Sex are very fluid in my life if you know what i mean." It is funny but like George and his shrimp joke I focused on it too much and missed the landing which I assume (and maybe hope) did not make the final cut.
In any case, WHAT DID HAPPEN both humbled me and shocked me yet again. And to not ruin a very fun show I will say that the man who shocked me is Glynn Washington and I hope to meet him someday in the near future, like April, at our shop.
