"LIVE" with Martha
I strive to be more like her - my favorite acronym is "WWMD" (What Would Martha Do). My family calls me Martha Jr. She is ridiculous, lavish, over-the-top and has lots of helpers. What's not to like about that!?!?!
I have the most fortunate opportunity to speak with her on the phone. NO KIDDING!!!! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I listen to Martha Stewart Radio to and from work the week of Thanksgiving. I left the office on Monday, tuned in as usual, and she was hosting the Turkey Hotline. Keep in mind - most of the time, there are semi-famous/important chefs that are hosting the show, but that afternoon Martha was hosting. I called...........the "screener" picked up on the second ring. My heart fell into my stomach. She asked what question I had, I told her and she put me on hold. As you may suspect, I already knew the answer - I just wanted to talk with Martha. Approximately 7 minutes later, I was "LIVE" with Martha. I asked my question (wasn't that important/difficult), and we exchanged our schedule for Thanksgiving Day. Just in case you're going to NYC and want to see her, she will be walking around Central park mid-day - after brunch, of course. I was SOOO nervous. When I got home, I told Rachel that I was "walk down the isle" nervous. Had to explain that one to the 13 year old.
The unfortunate part about this is that no one that I knew personally was listening. I was going to try to call or text Wally and Rachel, so they could listen, but I didn't want to accidently hang up. That would've been terrible!!!
To make up for it, I spent most of the evening calling everyone that I thought would REMOTELY care and told them. I am off cloud 9 a little more today, but still, very excited. I am the only person that I know that has spoken with Martha. WOW!!!!
The next thing on my list is meeting her in person. I'm going to add that one to my "Bucket" List.
