yet my heart is a flutter

such a little thing
yet my heart is a flutter
my name on your lips

Yesterday, Ed Quinn was on Take 2 Radio for an interview. I wasn’t able to listen in real time because it started when I was at work. Alas! The host of the show tweeted out a reminder and I lamented to her that I wouldnโ€™t be able to listen because I was at work. The conversation went like this:

@walelia: I’m tempted to listen to @OfficialEdQuinn on @take2radio here at work but I must refrain. Alas!

@take2radio: @walelia @OfficialEdQuinn lol poor Valerie!

@walelia: @take2radio @OfficialEdQuinn Valerie will be happy if she hears him say her name during the interview. ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL

The show started and I thought, well, wouldnโ€™t it totally rock if he actually said my name?! What were the chances?

Near the end of the hour, I got the following tweet:

@take2radio: @walelia @OfficialEdQuinn Valerie you got a shout out from Ed! ๐Ÿ™‚

To which I replied:

@walelia: @take2radio @officialedquinn yah! Now I just need to listen! Lol. Thank you!!!

I was TOTALLY STOKED when I read that tweet. I thought to myself, what did he say? Omigosh!!! I think I even squealed a little when I read the tweet. (At the very least, you must be amused by my enthusiasm.) I was SO GLAD that the show records their interviews but I wondered how soon the file would be online. It wasnโ€™t too long because one of my friends started listening to it before me!

Iโ€™ll admit, when I got down to listening to the interview, I skimmed over it because I just had to get to โ€œmyโ€ part. I did stop and listen to the one caller and I knew who she was from Twitter. LUCKY LADY! She actually got to talk with him. I dunno if I could have done it. No, I could have done it but I would have sounded giggly or so young or just flat out silly. Or maybe not. I think I might not have been able to think of anything to actually say!

After the caller, it was close to the top of the hour and the host asked Ed, โ€œAnd would you give a shout out to Valerie because unfortunately she had to work even though she wanted to be here listening…โ€ To which he said, โ€œOh yes, Valerie. Hi sweetheart, I hope you had a good day at work…โ€ And then he said he hoped I survived the Mayan Apocalypse and such. LOL

So, when he said, โ€œOh yes, Valerie. Hi sweetheart, I hope you had a good day at work…โ€ I had to put my hands over my mouth to stop from squeeing like a boy-band crazy fangirl. I laughed quite heartily and wished that I had been able to call in and talk to him. But then what the heck would I have said?! Iโ€™m sure I would have thought about something (like where does he perform live and would he ever trek back to the Bay Area for a show or two?). I would have probably have been super giggly and trying not to be.

Of course I snipped the audio to “my” little bit and then my friend snipped it further to just say, “Valerie… Hi sweetheart…” I use it as my text tone at the moment and I totally giggle every time I hear it. LOL I’m such a schoolgirl sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And so that is my tale of 12/12/12, a day I will remember as the day Ed Quinn called me sweetheart. ๐Ÿ˜€
