i received an email earlier this week from news boss man asking how my trip was as he tried to iron out my schedule since i am still filling in as the weekend anchor.
here is a portion of my email back to him:
“peru was fantastic (although i missed brazil, mozambique and mexico…) machu picchu was amazing! and unfortunately i am still recovering from my latin sickness…”
so today he comes up to me and says, “so how are we doing poopster?”
first of all, i absolutely hate that word and any derivative of it… and second of all he said it in front of the newsroom (which got EVERYONE’S attention) and thirdly, the only bait i gave him was “latin sickness” and he glossed over all the other possibilities…. like, altitude and altitude.
while i stare at him, mouth open, jaw hitting the floor all he says is, “that’s a lovely shade of red” and walks away.
