oh, the agony!

I am SO GLAD my job is not Radio Talk Show Host! Because almost every day, your theme music comes on (signalling a commercial/station identification break) and your guest or caller is STILL TALKING! And you have about 10 seconds where it's still okay for them to be talking, but then time runs out!

So you just sit on the edge of your seat, wondering if they're going to wrap up by themselves or if you're going to have to cut them off in the middle of a sentence! And you're thinking, Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease wrap up! And your breath gets a little shallower! And your palms are sweating! And little panicky noises start to escape your lips!

Don't worry, Hosts. I'm right there with you, feeling your pain as I'm listening.

And then everything works out okay in the end.

Maybe the professionals have better coping mechanisms than I do.

I guess this explains why Sean Hannity is an ass.
