Today was very exciting to say the least 🙂
My brother and I drove to the nature center and parked there just in time for 98.7 AMP Radio’s Rewind at 9 (radio contest on the Rat and Puff Show). My brother called in first, then I did–and guess what? I got through!
Rat or Puff (I don’t remember which one) picked up and asked me my name and if I had ever played before (I haven’t). They asked me my phone number and what city I lived in (Troy). They told me to turn off speaker, turn off my radio, and not to curse. I competed against Jenny from Lake Orion (“Battle of the Jenny/ies!”). I had to name a film (The Stepbrothers), a rapper (Afroman), and a song (I don’t remember which). I answered 1/3 correctly. I stayed on the line through two songs, and Jenny from Lake Orion had to do the same. She got Katy Perry (not fair!) and answered 2/3 correctly! She ended up winning the Jon Bellion (who?) tickets, but it was a thrill to get through to the radio station and have my voice be broadcast on live radio–although it was probably too early in the morning for anyone I know to have been listening 🙂

Miranda drove me out to Site #4 in her Toro (bull in Spanish!), which was very thoughtful of her, and I took two hours to finish all of the tests. I fished an arrow, a broken glass bottle, a chips bag, another plastic bag, and a yellow float out of the water #downwithpollution #savetheturtles. My phone got a bit wet and became stuck on headphones mode, so I spent a while back at my desk trying to clean the headphones jack. I ended up fixing it by sucking air out of it–the more you know!
I did the dissolved oxygen test at my desk, finished the fecal coliform test from Wednesday, and answered some emails. I talked with Christina about next week, and I headed out at 3. My brother came half an hour late. I had an obligation at 3:45 but arrived to it at 4:10. (I hope you’re sorry, Richard. Just kidding!) My brother and I tried new food to celebrate the end of the week 🙂 Dad’s home, and the 4th of July is fast approaching. If you’re reading this, have a great weekend and holiday!
