Today I did my first live recording (and maybe my last!) for Sun Sounds of Arizona, the new volunteering gig. I read the Yuma Sun newspaper, and it was only for 27 minutes (from 9:30 to 9:57 a.m.). But it was my first time doing a live recording and I didn't feel like I knew what I was doing.
Oh well, I got through it. I almost lost it during one article when I had to say the name "Pickels" several times. The first time I sort of smiled and almost laughed but didn't . The second time was hard. I had to think of something awful (not the proverbial dead puppies) but just told myself "You cannot laugh. Stop it." So I did.
On the way home, I felt like it needed to blow off some steam so I parked the car and just walked around a shopping center. In the parking lot, all in one parking space, I found these six pennies! Woo hoo! The walk and the found money put me in a better mood!
