When I worked at public television, I sometimes would volunteer to participate in the station’s annual fundraising auction. One year, the auction producers asked me to pitch an item up for bid, a Jacuzzi hot tub. But they wanted me to talk it up while in the tub. Along with my colleague Julie. We traveled to nearby Milton, where a unit was already installed, and taped the segment in advance of the auction. The thing I remember most about the afternoon was the cameramen asking me a million questions about Julie. Whatever.
