the ap said they were planning a segment profiling a few small businesses. would i be interested in being part of the show? interested in coming to nyc to film the segment? having pixelimpress as one of the businesses?
i don't know if you've ever rec'd a call/email from a talk show. i haven't. you can't predict your reaction. do you scream? do you play it cool? do you frantically calculate if you have time for a haircut, manicure, teeth whitening before the taping? do you mentally go through your closet for the perfect outfit only to realize that as a home-based business you have nothing perfect to wear to meet nate? do you wonder if you can you lose
we chatted briefly and i answered some questions about pixelimpress and she said she'd contact me the next morning. she did. she said her producer would be following up with a phone call. i waited. i waited some more. in the meantime i did this...
escorted steve to the emergency room.
he woke up saturday morning with heartburn and some other weird symptoms. he worried that it wasn't just heartburn. he has a family history of heart disease. he chose to call 911. 6 paramedics first treated him in our bedroom at 6 am saturday morning. because of his family history they chose to take him by ambulance to the emergency room. i followed. 4 hours later he was released. it was just heartburn. thankfully. but he has this scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.
this morning i heard from the ap again. she said they've chosen 3 others for the segment. disappointing? yes. but all's ok. i believe things happen for reasons and if it's not meant to be this time around, perhaps next time. and as all oscar nominees say when they're nominated but don't win the oscar, i'm seriously honored to have been noticed and considered.
and, since today's my birthday, i'm going to celebrate another way. by purchasing this. it's been on my radar for awhile.
