My husband calls me every day when he is on his way home from work. Tuesday, our conversation went like this:
Jason- My dad just called and said he just saw Allison on the news. What's that all about?
Me- I don't know. First I've heard about it.
Me to Allison- Was the news at your school today?
Allison- No, they were there on Thursday.
Me- What for?
Allison- I don't know. They just did video of our class, then left.
Me- Well, you were on the news today.
Allison- I know. And there was a big close up of me!
Me- You didn't think to mention it to us that you were going to be on the news?
Allison- ....... blank stare.
I remember when I was little, getting on the news was a huge deal! Has something changed where it's just an eh, whatever! moment now? We used to sit around with baited breath waiting for our short 2 second clip to featured, then felt so cool that we were on tv. Maybe with all the social media today, having your photo on the news is just another drop in the bucket?
By the way, here is her close up. The news was covering the standardized tests that the kids are taking this week.
