So here are my five minutes on MSNBC with Dylan Ratigan.
And here is the backstory:
I had made a beginner’s mistake: Yesterday, I got a bit of redness above my right eye, eczema or something, as I occasionally do. Normally, I ignore it, but today I remembered some cream that my mom had once sent me for exactly this purpose. I fished it out of the closet and rubbed it on. And apparently, I got some in my eye.
Just as I was arriving at the studio, my right eye started gushing tears. Great.
This is what wives are for. So I texted mine, and she texted back, while I was still in the parking lot:
think about Hannibal and his one conjunctivitis eye.
So that’s what I did. I was clutching a Kleenex during the clip, and kept wiping the tears away.
So, not that bad a performance, considering. 😉
