Thank you BCIT, for this opportunity.
They arrived at two, stayed for an hour and a half. And I had all sorts of fun.
I got to "talk" to the side of the camera (without actually looking at the camera). I got to faux-blog, and even go sit outside in the sun with a refreshing glass of lemonade - all while the camera was rolling. There was even a slow-motion moment of raising the glass to my lips, taking a sip, and putting it back down again.
These TV people really know how to work the details.
Cheesy? Apparently not. They call it "personal."
And I'll take their word for it - they were consummate professionals.
I even got to point out the kid-art on the fridge. SpongeBob was a big hit. Thanks Jack, for your masterpiece.
Funny how - just last year - in the moment after my diagnosis - I managed to coherently pick a "theme" that would be so media-friendly. First, in newsprint, I squeezed some lemons. Today, I got to drink them.
Most importantly - I got to talk about my journey so far. My struggles, my hopes for the future. My aspirations to bring awareness to MS - through any mode that I can.
And I think MS needs recognition. Just a little bit more.
