(Just as an aside note, did you really think I wasn’t going to do this? )
This is how Fatty Madi spent her morning.
First she waited patiently in the 6th floor waiting room of NHPR (New Hampshire Public Radio.) Apologies to the photo of the bird on the Audubon magazine that Madi is resting her bum on. Didn’t catch that one until I got home.
Having just recently come off of watching the latest Latino-inspired Glee show, Madi thought the potted plant had a very “Las Isla Bonita” feel to it.
We met Brady Carlson host of All Things Considered, who took us into the recording studio. It took a few tries to get the headphones right on Madi but eventually she was ready for her close-up.
Wouldn’t you know it? Once we got there, Fatty Madi got all, like, “I don’t have good enough presentation skills to talk in public” on me and she clammed up leaving me to do the entire interview. By myself. *sigh* Chicks, you know?
No worries, Brady and I talked about Charlie – our Black Copper Maran, kids and chickens, and whether or not I would ever bring home a baby calf who had mangled feet. (if you don’t get that one go back about a month and start reading.)
When it was time to go, Madi had worked up enough courage to ask Brady for a photo. No problem said Brady-I’m-in-a-plaid-shirt-and-already-look-like-a-chicken-farmer-anyway. Brady happily posed with a very willing Madi.
In talking with Brady after the recording, we discovered that he used to be a children’s librarian. How cool is that? It, of course, means he already knows all about chick-lit which made Madi and I very, very, happy.
