Have you ever had one of those days where your body seems to be working perfectly, but your mind seems to be miles away? Well, yesterday was one of those days for me.
Every morning at about 5:40, Evans and I will recap the results from the previous days poll topic before informing listeners of the new poll for the day. I`m responsible for that. Some days the poll might focus on something that’s in the news and of concern to our listening audience. Other days it’s just something fun. It’s not rocket science.
Well, yesterday we went on air to talk about the poll when I suddenly realized I hadn’t put a new poll into the system! Not only did I forget to put it in the system, I hadn’t even come up with a topic yet. That’s the first time that’s happened! Evans and I put our heads together and came up with a new poll that I quickly slapped up on our website. Duh!
Then at 7, during the news, I ran to the back to make a pot of coffee. We have a carafe that you have to put under the hot water before transferring it to a stand once the coffee is made. Well, yesterday morning after the carafe was ready to be transferred I grabbed the pot and kept walking. I was almost back in the studio when I suddenly realized I was carrying the carafe with me. I had walked from the lunch room all the way down the long hallway carrying a carafe of coffee instead of a cup of coffee. What an idiot!
I have no idea what I was thinking about all morning. I hope my mind had a nice vacation, wherever it went.
Things are fine this morning. A new poll was just about the first thing I took care of before I started anything else!
