There aren’t many things that shock me these days. But I received an email 3 weeks ago that SHOCKED THE HECK OUTTA ME.
“Hey Court, this is so and so, a reporter for the NeighborsGo section of the Dallas Morning News and we would like to feature a cover story on you discussing your fashion blog and what you’ve been up to lately.”
(Insert dramatic pause here, followed by a dropped jaw, followed by about 10-20 seconds without a pulse.)
After I regained consciousness upon realizing I was going be a “Cover Girl,” (hey, I know its only the local paper, but let me wallow in my moment here) I pulled it together and put on my most news worthy face for an interview and quick photo shoot with the reporter. She quizzed me about my experience with Bravo, my love for fashion, my haters, my personal relationships, and all the exciting things I’ve got in the pipeline….some which are still top secret.
And after the interview was over, I was convinced she might yank the story all together or go back to her boss and tell him that “Courtney Kerr is just not news worthy!” Did she understood a word that came out of my mouth? Did I talk too fast? Will my verbal sarcasm translate well to the pages of a newspaper? Am I funny at 930am with only 5 sips of coffee? Was mixing leopard and floral prints too aggressive for a coffeeshop?
And as shocking as it may seem…I still made the cover. WHEW.
And I still haven’t seen the paper in person…but as soon as I do, you can guaran-darn-tee its going in the scrapbook.
