Day 212: Gave A Radio Shout Out

Have you ever loved someone so much that you wanted to shout it from the rooftops?  That is how I feel about my wife.  Well, I have gone up to the roof of my building before to yell to the world how much I loved her just so you know, it isn't that easy.  My building isn't even that tall, but not a single person on the street below could hear me.  I even followed up by yelling directly at passersby to grab their attention, but alas, it was a miserable failure.  I needed to think of a way to let the world (or at least the greater Chicagoland area) know just how much my wife means to me, but how would I do it?  That is when an idea struck me.  Back in February, I was invited to go join Brotha Fred and Angi Taylor on their morning show (Chicago's greatest and most listened to) on Kiss 103.5.  I decided I would reach back out to them to see if it was possible for me to use the morning show as a forum to let as many people as possible know just how much I love my wife.  They were more than happy to do it, thus reinforcing how awesome I already thought they were.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I called in to Brotha Fred's Neighborhood and gave a radio shout out to declare my love for Lindsey.  Fred followed it up with a song dedication of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up," and Day 2 of Pookie's Acts of Kindness was in the book.  I once again want to thank Fred and Angi not just for having me on, but also for their support in getting the word out for 366 Random Acts.
