I only counted 7 “um”s


My first radio interview was nerve wracking. Ordinarily, I would be a wise-ass and joke around, but my funny bone was silenced due to fear. I wrote a sign and stuck it in front of me that said “DON’T SAY UM”.  It worked to a certain extent.

Also…the host didn’t tell me he was going to read my bio before we got started.  If I had known that, I wouldn’t have padded it to this extent.  (Good thing I left out that science fair award for my experiment, “Bell Bottom Pants and Social Rejection” that I received in grade 4.)  Once you get through that it gets much more exciting.

  5. Susan, you were awesome…even my 17 year old daughter was impressed…and she is NOT easily impressed.

BTW….congrats on the “bell bottom pants award”…..loves ya!
