I have more embarrassing stories. Of course I do. Including one that I'm debating telling, but might not.

But I had another new embarrassing story pop into my life. Last night/this morning. It seemed appropriate.

One of my favorite bands as a podcast. I love this band and I love this podcast.
them and help out with their social media.

The 4th was just a mention of fans spreading the word and how "Gary can't do it alone".

Obviously, I was extremely flattered. I started out thinking they were joking, but as the episodes have been coming out and they keep mentioning it, it occurred to me "They might be serious".

So I gave the matter a lot of thought, what I would have to do in order to run their social media account... ideas that I had and, to me, most importantly, did I want to cross that line from fan to employee, or would that damage something special?

But chances like this don't come along very often. I've had more than my
Over the course of the past 6 or so episodes, they have mentioned me 4 times. 3 of those times were direct, and often several minute laughing about something I've said online and saying that I should come work for share in my life, and every other time I've passed them off to someone else to thought that I had more time to act than I actually did and never got around to it... or that maybe a *better* offer would appear... I've regretted those times when I haven't jumped.

I determined that while I didn't think I could do the job full time or as close to it as it deserved, that I was willing to help them out in any way they needed in an unofficial capacity. So I emailed them to let them know, and then went to sleep, wondering what was going to come next.

This morning I woke up to the message thanking me for the offer, but that they were "mostly joking".

You have to try. You have to put yourself out there even when it's not the most comfortable thing for you to do. But falling on your face like that, it's pretty embarrassing.

Ah, but they said "mostly." That's not like, "we were totally joking, man." But yeah, misunderstandings are hugely embarrassing. :-(
