This is a little embarrassing, and I normally don't "out" myself, but I think this story is one that my fellow Buzz-erians can relate to.
I had one of those really busy days at work; racing from meeting to meeting, working under deadlines, etc. Though my schedule was full, I must admit I did have a chance to eat a quick breakfast and a full lunch, not to mention coffee and tea throughout the day.
Well, to cut to the chase, five o'clock rolls around, and I realize that I haven't had the opportunity to visit the men's room even once and now the need is CRITICAL. I've got about fifteen minutes before I must head out of the office, so I quickly reach to "lock" my computer when I realize that I haven't yet downloaded my Buzz Out Loud for today. I figure, with an East Coast time of 5:00 pm, it?s 2:00 pm VERONICA time, so she's returned from lunch and uploaded the podcast. If I can just hold off for a moment, I can set the download to start, and when I return, I can listen to the podcast in the car.
Summoning all my willpower, I quickly open iTunes and attempt the download, but to my dismay, today's podcast isn't there. But in my vivid imagination, I can see Veronica uploading the file at that very moment <shame on some of the rest of you for your vivid imaginations?>.
"It will be there any second now", I tell myself. So I'm hopping on one leg and every few seconds clicking the "Update Podcast" on the menu. I know the moment I give up, THAT'S when the upload will be complete, and once I return from the rest room, there won't be time for the download.
By now, my co-workers think I?ve lost it because they hear me hopping and clicking and muttering under my breath, "Veronica... come on baby... VERONICA!!!... ".
I try to distract myself by considering far more uncomfortable situations (Snakes on Planes!!). I ask myself, WWMD (?What Would Molly Do??), but the need continues to grow, and I can?t hold out much longer.
Finally, the Call of Nature over-rides the Call of the Buzz Cast.
I do finally listen to that's day's podcast... the next day. But the story doesn?t end there.
Here's my problem now: Every time I click on "Update Podcast", I feel the need to use the bathroom.
