A Golden Day

Many of you know that when we adopted our dog, Katie, we started fostering for Rez Dog Rescue. My friend, Sheri, runs the group and I have wanted to interview her for my t.v. show for a while. Since my little local show for The Museum of Women’s History is about interesting women, I begged Sheri to agree to let me interview her. She is smart and funny, but not a big fan of being in the limelight. I reminded her that my show is on the same channel that broadcasts school-board meetings and city council meetings. It’s not as if it a national show.  I was thrilled when she said, “yes.” Mind you it wasn’t enthusiastic or excited. More like “ok, you wore me down, I’ll do an interview.”  I was just so happy she agreed I didn’t really care how she said yes, just that she did.

Friday was our day to do the deed. I sent her the questionnaire to fill out and the release form.  She picked me up at work and thrust that those papers at me the minute I got in the car. She was not really excited about this. She also had a c.d. her ex-husband made for her of pictures of dogs she has rescued. That was going to run in the back ground while we were talking. Neither of us had bothered to check the c.d. before giving it to the program guy. We sat in our chairs and I explained how this whole process would work. Telling her not to look at the cameras but to look at me. We were just going to chat for a bit. Behind us the pictures started running and suddenly we both shrieked in shock! They were pictures taken at one of her birthday parties, towards the end of the night. They were not dog pictures for sure. We were laughing so hard it was hard not to cry. Thankfully, the guy in charge of my show was able to delete those from the rotation. I was just hoping that he had not posted some of the stupid pictures we had taken after long rides to the rez. They are not flattering at all.

We get counted down that its time to start. I started to get a bit nervous. I have never interviewed someone I’m close to. I know all the answers, so it was odd to ask her stuff I already knew, but my audience didn’t know and that was who we were taping for. I introduced myself and welcomed Sheri to the show. She said, “Thank you, Bernie” so solemn and serious, I almost started laughing right there.  Our friends were wondering how we would get thought something like this without it having to be edited. My show is one take and 28 minutes. Whatever was said was going to air. I got some of her back ground and that went well. I could see her eyes twinkling, so I was just waiting for something silly to happen. I would have loved to have been as obnoxious as we normally can be. However, for the purpose of the show we had to be normal. Everything is clipping along nicely. Nobody has said a swear word or anything inappropriate. We were doing great! Then she just couldn’t stand behaving anymore. I asked her: “Where did you get the idea to send puppy bags home with new adopters?”  She looked at me serious as a heart attack and said, “God told me”  Then said, “I don’t know where I got the idea.” I about flew across the table at her to choke her. I couldn’t laugh. I must have just stared at her for a second or two and we kept going. The rest of the interview went off without a hitch. I think we were both glad it was done.

Then it was off to run errands all over town before our pedicle appointment at Golden Nail. Sheri gave me a gift certificate to get my tootsies done for my birthday. We decided to go together and see what trouble we could get into.  The guy who owns the salon is funny and from Minnesota. What more could you want.  When we sat down I couldn’t help but stare at him and finally blurt out, “You look like my nephew, Trey!” He stared at me for a beat or two and said, “You do realize that I’m Asian, right?”  Which made me laugh like a mental patient. I explained that my nephew was adopted from South Korea, as was his sister, Jade. I think he thought I might have needed glasses. We had a lot of laughs getting our feet done. The folks doing our pedis were quite funny as well. When it was time to leave, we had to put our toes under a light to seal the polish. Sheri tried to convince me that I needed to hike my leg up high to put dry them under the hand nail light.  I told her there was no way I could hike my fat thigh up that high.  On her first visit there, she did that as a joke. She is more limber than I.

We shuffled out with those cheap thong shoes that break if you look at them. It was time to get an oil change and as soon as Sheri got out of the SUV, her thong broke. She shuffled into the oil change place with half a shoe. I was laughing pretty hard. We sat down to wait and quickly got bored. So we found a Highlights for Children magazine and kept ourselves entertained. The first was a search and find game. She did much better than me. I was looking for actual objects and they were really only outlines. She gave me a hard time about the magazine being too hard for me to read. Then she read me a story in her best story-teller voice. There was a gal in the waiting room who kept looking at us funny and texting on her phone. Lord only knows what she was saying. Finally, she could stand it no more and had to look at the Highlights magazine as well. We still had time to kill so I stapled Sheri’s flip-flop back together. I’m a helper bee. You can’t be married to an
Engineer and not have some of that ingenuity rub off.  When it was time to pay I quizzed the guy at the counter about different items they had for sale. One was a cabin filter. I didn’t believe Sheri when she told me it was for a cabin.

Finally, it was time for dinner at Golden Phoenix Chinese buffet.  We shuffled into the restaurant with our pedi flip-flops on. Sheri’s held together by a staple. We gorged ourselves and were ready to call it a night. As we got ready to leave, we realized that both of our flip-flops had blown out! Yes, we are classy with a capital K, thank you for noticing. We had to shuffle hop out of the restaurant with partial shoes.  That is why we can’t have nice things. We don’t take care of them. All in all a Golden day!!!
