I have to admit that I always knew this was a possibility, but now that the day is here, it is time for all of us to take stock and recognize the gift we have been given. TBTL has been a friend to me every day since last November, and it will be hard for me to accept the changes that are coming. BUT, I am cautiously optimistic, and I’m not writing this because I think it’s the end – it’s just a good time to show my appreciation.
You know, it’s funny – having worked in radio for 8 years now, I never thought I would never be one of those people who wrote to or called a radio show, but then TBTL came along and it truly changed my life.
Just a few words about Luke, Jen and Sean – how I see them.
Luke, you immediately put me at ease when I was on I Love You Chunk back in December. You have a true gift for relating to people, and you really shine on-air. I love the way you self-deprecate and deprecate others. You’re funny and smart, andI can’t wait to hear more from you!
Jen, you are truly an inspiration to me. From where I stand it seems you are not afraid to live your life the way you want, without worrying what others may think. You have inspired me to embrace parts of myself that I have kept hidden for years, for fear that my friends would think I was a big dork. You are just plain awesome, in my book.
Sean, you’ve made me just about spit out my drink or drive off the road many, many times. I’m always impressed by your quick wit – you make me literally LOL. Honestly, a majority of my favorite moments from the show revolve around something you said or did. More Cooking With Sean please!
I really hope that all three of you will be part of whatever comes next.
I also want to say to my fellow Tens that I have been honored to share this with you. Meeting the Tenverites and Tens from across the land has been one of the best things that has happened to me, and I know that I wouldn’t have met any of you without TBTL. I love you guys, man. *sniff*
Justin and I were discussing the news last night and he said “Well, I guess you guys won’t be Tens anymore.” I said, “No, I will always be a Ten.” He thought for a minute and said, “Well, then I will always be an Eleven.”
No matter what the future may bring, I want to say THANK YOU to Luke, Jen and Sean, and most importantly to my fellow Tens, for making the world a less lonely place. I love you all. RAWR!
