I usually like to say positive things about people here. But sometimes…… I fail. So I will make it short and sweet.
Kathy Lee Gifford made one of the biggest blunders EVER yesterday when she interviewed Martin Short about his marriage and his wife – all on live television. Praising him for loving her and having such a great marriage. Asking him how long they have been married. He was doing fine giving vague answers and trying to steer her off the topic because……..his wife died of ovarian cancer two years ago!
I know TV interview hosts receive a huge packet of bio information on their guests. It is apparent that she never read it or that mistake would not have happened on LIVE TELEVISION. She did not do what was required of her. She did not prepare, and that was an enormous mistake.
We all make them. Trust me. We have all failed. But oh dear! On live television?????
I was counting up my mistakes and failures the other day. Wow. Under different circumstances, I might have hidden under a rock for the rest of my life. Truth be told, I have failed far more than I have succeeded. But I guess the truth of the matter is this. It isn’t the failure that matters as much as what you build from the ashes. Hopefully, it’s something better every time. Hopefully.
I am so hoping that the Steampunk exhibit is a success. We have all poured our hearts and souls into it for the past three months. Building it has been a real experience. I only hope the crowds will come, and once they enter the crazy world we have created…….I hope they find their sense of whimsy and let go enough to truly enjoy themselves.
Off to go hammer something together. Or maybe use a staple gun. We have a new staple gun that also shoots nails. I am forbidden to touch it. LOL!
