  1. I still think you did a wonderful job! Good idea with the Nyquil Cough. I would have taken a Xanax or two if I had to do an interview like that. Three or four if it was live on TV.

    Remind me when your book comes out, I'll get a copy of it and do a review on my blog if you want me to!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you, Betty - for EVERYTHING! I will definitely take you up on your generous offer. And then I'll promptly get an "I Love Betty" tatoo so you'll know how grateful I am.

      Hope you & yours have a great holiday and find a perfect "view."

      xoxo Marianne

  2. Good for you. You are so refreshingly honest. Looking forward to that book also.

    Since you are a celeb, I guess you must tweet and all that.

    One idea. Join Toastmasters for public speaking skills. Last time I spoke there it was on my addiction to Pinterest. Not going to tweet now. My next Toastmaster speech (confession) will be on my housekeeping including pictures on Power Point of my messes.

    Hugs,
    Carol

    1. I would TOTALLY come to hear that, Carol!! Thanks for the tip. I have heard the cautionary tales about Pinterest, so I try to steer clear.

      Have a great Thanksgiving!

  4. Hilarious! Because it didn't happen to me of course ;) If it were me, I'm certain I would have taken the donuts with me afterward and swallowed them all whole to feel better.

    I have to do community cable segments at my day job...I'm pretty sure that I had VERY visible pit stains during the first 3 or 4. It's one of those things that doesn't get better until you're pushed into the busy intersection over and over again. Ugly crashes and splats are inevitable...but eventually you become a little more spry and the body count decreases ;) Thanks for sharing your harrowing tale! So funny!

    1. Thanks, Jen! I appreciate the idea that there may be hope to actually improve here. Yet sadly, I have a feeling a repeat invitation may be withheld. For about 10 years.

      So cool that you do those segments! I'm in awe.

      Have a great Thanksgiving!

    1. Xanax seems to be the way to go.

      You don't suppose "The View" requires a drug screen, do you?

      Now where did I leave that turkey....?

  7. That's hysterical :) I laughed all the harder, because it is exactly the way I react when speaking in public, too!
