Thank you, DTU, for having me as a judge at your Bergenfield contest! I saw some really great routines at the high school and collegiate level and got to hang with some wonderful people! The talent was great, but so was the hospitality. On our way out, a grandfather from Hofstra offered to get us a cup of “cawfee” when we judges explained we’re from the Midwest. When waiting in line for the restroom, a group of moms included me in an animated conversation about “what ya get for ya money at restaurants these days.” I told them I really had nothing further to add, they had covered all my thoughts thoroughly, but I was just going to speak some sentences so they could freak out about my “accent.” OHMYGAWD!!!! Where ya from? was the reply. I love you, New Joizey!
