My interview at the Chicago Tribune

I heard a rumor today about myself. Maybe this is how Kathy Griffin feels.

Someone told me I’d interviewed at the Chicago Tribune and she was upset that I hadn’t told her since, you know, she’s in Chicago. The person in question found out because she was asked by a friend of a friend for a reference; she said she gave a good one, and I have no doubt it was. (Didn’t the Trib just lay off more than 80 people?)

For the record, I’ve never interviewed at the Trib. Or any Chicago media outlet. But I hope I get the job anyway. I also hope it’s a job I want; I probably should have hoped for that first.
