What a Time to Lose My Memory

Okay, I admit it. I have on occasion written to Dr. Phil via his website. I can recall a couple of times, but I can't remember what or when I wrote. Just my luck. No one wants to feel like a certifiable pest or the world's biggest idiot. But, that's how I feel right now.

What were the chances...whatever I wrote about last time found some interest. Today I received an email from one of Dr. Phil's producers, telling me they were interested in perhaps having me on the show to discuss my ordeal. Imagine my excitement, then immediate shock when I realized I had no idea what ordeal they referred to.

I was sent a questionnaire to complete and return ASAP, describing how this has affected my life, what I want to ask Dr. Phil, and what I hope to achieve. If only I knew. I don't think I ever expected they would want me on the show, and I can't believe I'd even entertain the thought because I'm always astonished at how people go on and air their dirty laundry or stupidity. BUT my ordeals were never anything that actually exposed my inner soul or portrayed me as trailer trash...at least I'm pretty sure. Hard to say since I can't recall what harrowing ordeal I wrote about. :)

I emailed the gentleman back and asked for a hint. I admitted that although I'm not a frequent 'form filling' flake, I have no idea what I would be addressing. I'm sure he'll hit the trash button and chalk me up to a nutcase, but isn't it a great thought to think that someone thought I was that interesting...of course someone I told expressed the thought that Dr. Phil must be running low on topics. *rofl*

Ah...old age. It's not enough that we have to cope with the shock of how we look, we also have to constantly forget things. With any luck, I'll forget how many wrinkles I have remember what the heck was so important I wrote to Dr. Phil. I can't even look in my 'sent' box for a hint because I used his website. Shoot! My moment of fame down the drain.

LoL that's something I bet many, many people can relate to...and I'm not sure how much of a factor age plays :)

I hope they write back and give you a hint as to what your ordeal was ;)

Kim Richards said...

LOL I can see the title of the show now: People who don't remember emailing Dr. Phil and the people who love them.

Hugs Ginger!

Chris Redding said...

LOL is all I can say.

Oh, too funny! Well, I hope he doesn't think you're a nutcase and answers your question. There's nothing worse than to know you were almost there...but couldn't remember. LOL

You forgot the rest of Dr. Phil's picture.....I'm sure that's what your ordeal is. I think we pretty much solved all the other ones that have any kind of resolution. Face it...you're as bad as I am!

lcaxcire was my word verification to post this comment. Is that how they say laxative in Tennessee or is it a hint that I'm full of shit?

ROFL! I hate it when stuff like this happens! I am forever going into another room, only to forget why I went there! lol

Wow, Ginger! Are you sure you don't want to go on Dr. Phil's show? You could always slip in the fact that you are an author.

I sure hope they can tell you what your ordeal was. They might invite you just because your life is so interesting.

Good luck!

Ginger
Yup, you are definitely certifiable - but we love you just as you are. There's only one thing you can do, being such a great writer - invent something! But I do like Kim's idea - People who don't remember e-mailing Dr Phil

Hey Ginger, what a marketing tool. Jump at it. The only thing better would be Opra. Think about the exposure for your publishers, your books and your blog.

Mirella Patzer said...

Wow! I'm so excited for you. Great marketing. Please keep us posted. I'll be watching if you're on.
