I am a smart and sensitive man, but I am unfortunately limited intellectually, emotionally and spiritually because A) my peace of mind is generally dependent upon the everyday successfulness of Boston sports teams, B) my interpretation of life events is often dependent upon what minimally relevant movie I can reference and C) my self-worth is almost entirely dependent upon your opinion of me. As you can see, I have dependency issues.
To be honest, I don't. It was a hell of a lot of fun while it lasted, and it definitely had its perks (or perqs, if you prefer), but I'm sincerely happy to have moved on. And yes, John Hodgman's piece on "This American Life" may have had something to do with the imminent end of my run as Cuervo's official party catalyst because of its perceived portrayal of the brand as an irresponsible employer (the piece was truthful and accurate as well as entertaining, but probably not in Cuervo's best interest), but my time was almost up anyway.
Cuervo was in the midst of changing its image to that of a hipper, more sophisticated beverage [cough] from that of a brazen shot of liquid courage which released the inner untamed spirit. And honestly, I needed to grow up as well. So it all worked out for the best. And for just a few days every few years when Plan B re-airs on TAL, I get to be a famous minor radio personality.
