Happy Monday everyone!
Almost every Monday I have The Carpenters stuck in my head singing “Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.” Today isn’t particularly dreary or terrible, but I am SO TIRED. I hate that feeling. It may have something to do with my efforts to drastically reduce my morning caffeine intake. I’m sitting next to Sonya Heitshusen thinking, “Shut up, Erin! You’re whining about not drinking a full pot of full strength coffee, and Sonya busted her butt competing in a triathlon at the crack of dawn yesterday!” Needless to say, Sonya is my hero!
Because I’m in a funk, I thought I’d share a funny story with you.
It has to do with these fun little treats.
I’ve been chomping on Dum-Dums a lot lately. They’re better than most of the stuff in vendo-land, but come with one side effect I had not considered until last week. These are the types of emails (and phone calls) that were coming into the newsroom last Wednesday: “Am I mistaken or was Erin’s tongue green on the 6pm news 6/13 ??” Actually, my tongue was a very vibrant shade of blue, thanks to the blue raspberry sucker that was parked in my mouth prior to the early newscasts. So, I’m adding tongue color to the list of things to worry about prior to going on the air.
