Late for a TV interview

Fayteen and I were headed for an interview with Suzie Humphreys on The Broadcast on KTXD Channel 47.

And we were a little nervous, especially because we were late. It was snowing in Dallas on Wednesday last week. There was just a light flutter of snow flakes, but already there were a few icy patches on the road. At 8:45, when we were supposed to be in the TV studio, with every hair in place and smiles frozen on our faces, we were plodding along inch by inch on Arapaho Road, just past Preston.

“Do you think we should call Suzie?” I asked.

“Sure,” Fayteen said.

When I called and explained our situation, Suzie laughed.

“I’m behind you,” she said. “I’m at Hillcrest and Arapaho.”

All three of us were late for the interview. Of course, for Fayteen and me, being late for a TV interview was a big deal. We don’t appear on TV every day!

But, for Suzie, who appears on the show for two hours a day, five days a week, getting caught in traffic was a minor inconvenience. She knew that her colleagues would rearrange the morning schedule so that she could do our interview later in the show. And they did. And Fayteen and I talked about our book The Resolute Woman for six minutes.

Of course, we were nervous—and a little apprehensive about showing up late. But we did fine. We talked about being Resolute. About doing some soul-searching. About the importance of self-knowledge and hard work. About having goals and priorities, but not trying to be perfect. About taking action—and figuring out what keeps you from taking action.

Next time we do a TV interview, we’ll be a little less nervous. And we won’t be late.
