I have recently had the opportunity to interview for a TV series that is going to be based on stay-at-home dads. Since I have a burning desire to walk the red carpet and have people pay me to wear clothes, I decided to try out. What the heck, right? What’s the worst that could happen? One problem is that Gavin may not want to be on TV. At this age, he has no say. (We vote on things all the time, but he never asks any questions or says ‘Aye‘ or ‘Nay’. So, 85% of the time, I win!) How do I know what Worm wants? Does he want everyone in the universe to see what he’s doing and how he’s growing up? Does he want to be famous?
I thought about all of the great things that could happen if we were on TV:
- My friends and family could watch us every single day on TV.
- Gavin could become a reality TV star.
- It would take my blog to another level.
- I could get paid for changing diapers and brushing baby teeth. (Gavin would get paid in jujube’s and jellybeans.)
- I could eventually have my own talk show!
- My friends and family could watch me every single day on TV.
- I wouldn’t be able to see myself on TV because I don’t have cable.
- We would have to watch everything we say and do in public.
- We could get negative press from the media.
- We could be stalked by the paparazzi.
- We could end up like the Kardashians.
Things I learned that day:
- It takes 4 hours to get to L.A. (from San Diego) on a weekday morning.
- It takes 1 hr and 50 minutes to get home from L.A. (to San Diego) on a weekday at lunch time.
- I can’t drive more than 2 hours without having to pee.
- 50 minutes of my camera interview will be condensed into 2-3 minutes. Therefore, 95% of what I say is worthless. (Have they been talking to my wife?)
- There’s a lot of if’s in show business.
Stay tuned. If I know something, you’ll know something. If you’ve got any thoughts, feel free to comment!
