Where Do You Winter?

2/26/2008   Comment on This

Have you ever been to a stuffy cocktail party? Of course you have. In the course of trying to promote my radio show, I now go to events or parties I never would attend if I were just a regular schmuck. Now that I am embarking on a radio career I have to "get around" as they say in many social circles. I guess I shouldn't complain. I get a chance to talk about my true love (no not me) which happens to be radio.

The great thing about radio is that you have to use your imagination and “think” - what a unique concept in our cocoon world of today.

AnyWHO, I was recently thrown into an event with a high brow crowd when the conversation turned to me and an ugly old broad asked me what I did for a living. Needless to say when I told her I do a Man's Show on the radio she was not too delighted. She asked me how I came up with that concept and I explained to her that for the longest time, the males of the world have become emasculated. With Oprah, Kathy and Judy, the guys in Chicago don't have a chance. I went on to explain the part about being called a “broad” is a good thing in “our radio world.”

I wasn't much of a hit. However, I had a great time pissing off most of the women. The guys seemed to like it, but were afraid of giving their opinions, which is exactly my point for doing the show. Just around the time I was digging a deeper hole with this broad, another snob entered the group and starting asking the question:

“Where do you Winter?”


Of course Naples (way overrated in my opinion unless you are looking for a deal on tucks), Scottsdale, Miami and Vegas were mentioned.

When eye contact was made with me I blurted out “Rockford.”

The ugly broad asked me, "Why Rockford?"

I answered, "Because I need to get away from people like you."

She replied, “You are disgusting.”

I thanked her and walked away with my merlot in check.

Where do you Winter?
