Bloody Stools & Bar Stools

Today I did my first radio interview. I’ve got two or three more scheduled for the next two days. That is weird! It’s for my book which came out on Friday. If you happen to listen to Christian radio, and hear one of these interviews – let me know how I sound!

The weirdest thing today was that the DJ called me, said, “Okay, we’re going on the air in a minute, hang tight,” and then I’m left to listen to something, which I can only assume was the commercial they had on the air at the moment (because right after it I heard the DJ’s start talking and then they introduced me). So here’s the weird part: The commercial was all about having “bloody stools.” I mean this thing was going on and on about having blood in your stool. I’m waiting for my first ever radio interview, and I hear “bloody stools” like six times in a minute. The whole time I’m debating whether I can be funny about this… “So our guest is Vince Antonucci, author of ‘I Became a Christian and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt” – how are you Vince?” — “Well, actually I’ve been better, it’s just this problem I have with bloody stool. I’m serious, my poop is coming out with friekin’ blood all over it. But now that I heard your commercial, well, I have hope to carry on. Thank you! In fact, I was going to have my next book be, ‘I Became a Christian and All I Got Was This Bloody Stool,” but now it’s going to be ,”I Had Bloody Stool But I Went On a Call-In Radio Program and Got My Bloodless Poop Back Again.”

My life is strange. Then tonight I get to go preach in a bar again… If you’re new to this blog and want to know a little more about what we’re doing in the bar, here are some posts I’ve done on it. The last 3 are probably the most informative: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Well, have a good night, and here’s to your stool being bloodless!
