Did I hear that right?


Am I speaking to Robin?

Yes you are.

This is Yoshi from Oprah.

(awkward pause)

I'm sorry, where are you from?


Hmmmm... (another awkward pause while trying to decide how to respond.)

Isn't that show cancelled?  (yes, I really said that, with my teeth clenched.)

(awkward silence on the other end)  Oops! (maybe shouldn't have said that.)

Guess what?  You've won a car!

Thank heavens some people have a sense of humor.

He is actually Yoshi from OPAA and wanted to have me in for an interview for a job that I applied for.

You can see why I got that wrong, right?


He must have thought I was crazy.

He said he needed a good laugh.  So, I'm good... right?


I got the job.  He thinks I'm funny.  He doesn't know that I just didn't hear him correctly and yes, I am that kind of dork.

I am going to be a lunch lady.  Did you know there is a song about it?  I do now.

I got called to be the secretary for the Young Womens and the second counselor graced me with the song.  She said she will always be humming that song when she sees me.

Great to know.

The hours are when my children are in school and it pays decent for non skilled labor type job.  Although Yoshi kept saying he wanted me to be the cook.  I would rather do mindless work and go home, but it pays the bills, so I am going to go in with a smile on my face and a net on my head.

By the way, my kids thought I was so cool to being having an interview with Yoshi.  He's a rockstar in the video game world apparently.
