The car guy from “Bob’s of Milford,” whose name is not Bob, was there. TV celeb–he qualifies. He remembered me from a car not-buying experience 17 years ago. Please, I hope I wasn’t an ass back then. He seemed nice.
Earlier I’d been asked if I’d be willing to take folks at the party on a tour of the studios. Of course. I took it as my invitation to do stand-up. So shoot me.
I did my best to show the place off for the three groups assigned me.
It would be nice to invite you to the TV station. Everyone who visits or watches a show on-site comes away impressed. Not just at FoxCT (though we do it well).
TV is inherently interesting to watch. Think football team or ballet. A group of people in the studio, in the control room and often live in the field are coordinated in their actions. Everyone has to be right on time–everyone.
Of course we do it every night 7/52/365. There’s a routine and an understanding. We are practiced.
Don’t ask. You can’t come. We have no one to supervise you. We’re just not set up for it and it would be easy for a stranger to be in the wrong place.
There were a lot of nice people around tonight. I shook hands, said hello and posed for pictures. I hugged women and it was good.
We should do this more often.
