Today at work I was listening to a certain Government radio station when the topic of scroggin came up. The presenter was arguing with another guy about the difference between scroggin and trail-mix. I chipped in my two cents worth via SMS, with the following insight:
"trail-mix is the poor man's scroggin"
I know this sounds pretty banal, but the presenter seemed quite fond of my comment, and thanked me personally as he read it out over the air on national radio. He called me a few minutes later (off air), to get my address so he could send me a complimentary copy of the station's monthly music magazine.
I felt quite chuffed, as this is the closest I've been to the spotlight since having a letter published in Time Magazine (the South Pacific edition) 8 years ago, explaining the virtues of the Swedish and Danish soccer teams in the 2002 World Cup.
Simple things excite me.
