I've been lazy lately.
I skipped doing a podcast this past Friday...I think that only happened once before. But then, I also skipped doing the Saturday Coffee Shindig, otherwise known as Facebook Live. Like I said, lazy.
That's what happens when you are a one man band. If you want to take a day off, you do it. I'm lucky that I'm semi-retired...so, if I don't want to do something, I just don't.
The problem with that is...well, I become less motivated to do much of anything.
One underlying factor, I've been procrastinating going to the dentist...but, now that a couple of my teeth are hurting more often than not, I know I've let it go on too long, and I'm going to need a lot of dental work over the next few months.
Nobody really enjoys going to the dentist anyway, but when you've put it off to the point of pain, you know it's going to be brutal.
My other fear...(yes, I said fear) is that it will change my speaking patterns at least for awhile. I still do some voicework from time to time for my friends at WNIT, the PBS station in South Bend, Indiana, and I want to sound like me. Having been in the broadcast biz since the late 70s, I know the drill with older announcers. The mouth and teeth change over time, and with it the enunciation and elocution begin to sound, well, like an old man. Such is life.
The best piece of advice I ever got in this business was simple: Be Yourself.
Myself might sound a little different over the next few months...stay tuned!
In this podcast, I talk about micro-podcasting...it's the new trend. Should I do it?
After my dentist gets through with me, I might have to!
