What enchants?
January 3, 2018

I’m at a broadcasting convention, listening to Darrell interview someone about alfalfa. The person holding forth couldn’t be more passionate. His enthusiasm is infectious. Bewildering, but infectious. As we leave his booth I tell him he made me care about alfalfa.

Can you imagine how much he loved hearing that? He started pulling people aside to share what I’d said. I had Darrell turn his recorder back on so I could pretend to give the guy a testimonial: “He made me care about alfalfa. Maureen Anderson, City Kid.”

I don’t know which felt better, listening to the man bask in my admiration -- or seeing the look on Darrell’s face, wide-eyed at the silly.

What do you do for fun?
