This is No secret..... Rae Chelle is my best friend at WIBW. We get along so well and have such a great time working together! What you see on TV is really a great friendship that I think comes across very genuine when we anchor together...AND as close friends go there are times that are just too funny to pass up...Here we go....
You may remember that I signed up to judge the 4H King & Queen this Saturday.
"Rae Chelle it would be so much fun if you co-judge with me! I wish you could but they already have three judges...blah," I said like two weeks ago.
"No, no, whatever you do don't volunteer me! I can't do it that day," she said back.
*A week passes*
"Brian Hi it's Charlene with 4H we had a judge cancel and I am in a pinch, I really don't know who else to ask. Do you know of anyone?"
"Hmmm....I think Rae Chelle would be great at something like that. She might be busy but you could always check in with her," I suggested with a REALLY BIG grin on my face.
*A couple days pass*
"BRIAN!?!" Uh oh. I don't like when Rae Chelle shouts my name like that! "Did you volunteer me for the 4H judging??" glaring at me. I look up.
"4H..." I said it in a way that made it sound like I had no idea what she was talking about
"Yea, the 4H judging."
"Oh well, I mean, I just said you would be a really good judge, Ah, I didn't really volunteer, Ah, you, to ah do it or anything." I said like a 10-year-old who just got caught with his little hand in the cookie jar.
She sighed, "Well I can't do it Brian I have plans that day, I told you that why did you volunteer me for it when you know I can't do it."
Hmm valid point, "Well you need to learn to say no, I am helping you. You just write her back and say you can't do it. She will understand," I said with confidence defending myself.
"Brian you know I don't like to say no, I wish you hadn't done this."
*pout* for like 2 minutes I felt bad.
*Several Days Pass*
Rae Chelle and I are on our way to lunch, "I am judging the 4H contest with you this weekend," Rae Chelle said with a smile.
"WHAT?? OMG. I am so happy!! It is going to be so much fun!!" I practically shouted back!
Well I am so glad to hear you're not mad at me because I have volunteered you for Light the Night in September too!!! We are co-emcees. LOL.... ;0)
**dunks for the punch**
I was just asked by our sales person if I was interested in going out to the fair on July 26th to either kiss a pig or milk a goat and I said ONLY if Rae Chelle can come too.
"Oh of course it would be great if you both could come," she said.
*Picks up the phone & calls Rae*
"You will never believe what I volunteered you for now!!!" I told her....--This didn't go over well!
"Well I am off that day for a wedding and I don't kiss pigs.....& I'm not talking to you," Click.
This song is for you Rae!!! Thanks for being my best friend!
