Seeing myself on Oprah was, to put it mildly, a surreal experience. I’m sure Dr. Forni and the other guests who were on the set felt the same way. What you can’t see, however, is how badly I was busting to take a leak after the interview. When I got out of that studio I ran to the bathroom! Talk about nerves! (Maybe I shouldn’t have swilled all that bottled water in the green room or ate all those chocolate chip cookies!)
Being in Chicago and taping at Harpo Productions was an experience I’ll never forget. Again, I’m grateful to Ms. Winfrey and all the staff at Harpo for giving me the opportunity to talk about my book and discuss how waiters and other service people deserve to be treated like human beings. Oprah’s website even has some nice links about my appearance and an excerpt from my book! Check it out!
I’m visiting my parents in Pennsylvania for some serious R&R. Don’t worry, I’ll be back with some new stories soon! For everyone visiting Waiter Rant for the first time, be sure to check out the archives. There’s a ton of material there. (Click on the title of archived post to see them in their entirety.)
Thanks for tuning in!
