The other day, I was having lunch with a friend when Bristol Palin rang. I glanced at it, saw that it was from an unknown number, thought nothing of it, and kept eating.
As I was driving home, I listened to my voice mail:
Hi, Hemant. This is [Bob] and I’m calling from the White House Office of Public Engagement…
The White House called me. And I had ignored them because my Chipotle burrito was just too damn tasty.
In a slight panic, I called back. Bob wasn’t in his office. Did I miss my chance? We played phone tag. Luckily, I got in touch with him the next day and all is well.
So this Tuesday, I’ll get to speak to the White House Office of Public Engagement about the Secular Student Alliance, all the work our affiliates our doing, and how we may be able to work together. It’s as close as I’ll ever get to a direct line to President Obama.
You should’ve seen my little happy dance after we spoke. It was lovely.
Now, I fear I’ll say something inappropriate over the phone. I’m not sure what… but I’m worried.
You can help me out. Just leave a comment with anything I should make sure not to say.
I’ll study over the list and then everything will go wonderfully. I’m sure of it.
