Dan was on TV!
Thanks to the magic of Twitter, Dan found himself in the good company of a local Phoenix public relations expert (the wonderful Barb Harris), who just so happened to secure him a spot on NBC's afternoon news program, EVB Live.
I got to hang out backstage and, I don't know, play with the pretend fruit? They had all kinds of fake fruit lying around in bowls on coffee tables, like grandmothers do at home on the tops of their refrigerators because in any grandmother's house, the bowl on the coffee table is reserved for individually wrapped Werther's candies.
You know this to be true.
Anyway, it was surprising just how few people are required to film an hour-long television news program: there were just the two hosts, a weather woman, the producer, a cameraman, the director, the sound technician, and then me and Dan and Barb. On this huge set.
Not really sure why I felt the need to tell you that, but there it is. Here are some pictures!
And then, when it was over, I ran up to the blue screen and screamed, "Take my picture in front of the eggs!" And the producer kindly obliged.
