Just in case you had any doubt that I’m completely awkward and ridiculous, here’s more proof.
Every morning I stream the radio station 92 PRO FM from my phone while I’m getting ready for work. I listened to them every day on my commute when I lived down there, and had withdrawals when I moved further away (this was before we had this new-fangled streaming radio technology). The hosts, Giovanni and Kim, are hysterical. They’ve worked together forever and have a fantastic give and take that makes suffering through songs by Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus tolerable. Okay, that’s a lie – much of the time I just change the station for three minutes until the song is over and then switch back to the hilarity. But still! Anyway.
This morning I was following my usual routine with 92 PRO FM in the background, and I decided to grab a cider donut* for a quick breakfast while I got ready. So there I am, putting on my foundation when Giovanni decides to play the audio from a video of a guy being scared out of his skull while practicing the tuba. Doesn’t sound that exciting, does it? Well let me tell you – the sound this guy makes is the most surprisingly hysterical thing I’ve ever heard. Watch/listen to this before you continue reading:
So he plays this clip, and it caught me so off-guard that I started laughing – and while trying to stifle my laughter to keep from waking up my boyfriend, the donut I was eating spews out of my mouth and onto my mirror. All. Over. The mirror. After I stopped laughing/choking/gawking at what happened, I cleaned it up and felt compelled to tell Gio what he’d done to me. I post this to his Facebook wall:
He replies with an obligatory “hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha” and moments later they come back from a commercial break and I hear him say, “So one of my friends on Facebook just posted to my wall…” and proceeds to tell all 92 PRO FM listeners about what a disaster I am. The other host, Kim, comments that she’s glad I spewed the donut out as opposed to choking to death on it (which I appreciate). Because to be honest, the boyfriend sleeps through just about everything and that’s a valid fear. Anyway. Moments after that, I start to get Facebook friend requests from random people in Rhode Island who for some reason want contact with this ridiculous human being they just heard about on the radio. Guys – I’m an embarrassment. And despite that, you’re still reading this! Aww… you’re the best.

*In case you were wondering, it came from Honey Pot Hill Orchards – drool. If you live in the area, be aware that you can still pick some up through Christmas so there’s still time to relish in the deliciousness that is cider donuts!
