Narcissus

I made another appearance on Good Morning West Tennessee last Monday. This time I was promoting the YMCA's "FatBuster" contest coming up this week. I was a little tired, which is understandable given that I had to be there at 6:30, and I was a little unsure of myself since I had a lot to cover in a short amount of time, including showing off our handy-dandy little body fat monitor that will take the place of caliper testing.

But I'm still not sure what I was thinking when I decided that I should look directly into the camera and talk for about 15 seconds. Fortunately, I eventually realized that the news anchors were sitting next to me and looking directly at me while I was staring straight ahead. Jay didn't watch since he was fixing breakfast and wrangling two little people, but I think the camera operator was smart enough to close in on my face rather than pulling back and showing that I was completely ignoring the anchors in favor of staring at my (very exhausted-looking) self.

Duh.

You are very very very brave!

I would have thrown up on camera.

I would have done worse then just stare at myself...I would have puked and then started stammering.

However I think it's awesome that you can be a spokesperson for the YMCA. They are lucky to have you!
