"I play Between You and Me"

by Heidi Holtan

Last weekend at the KBXE Spread the Love event in Bemidji I got to meet the coolest girl EVER.

Meet Iris the sparkly-eyed future of radio. From what her mom told me (and she agreed to in head nods) she pretends to be me and hosts Between You and Me from her bedroom at home. Sometimes she uses a curling iron as her microphone.

I can't tell you how cool this is. When I was a little girl, I too played radio. And library. But enough about my exciting lifestyle choices. Back to Iris.

When I asked Iris about what topics she talked about on her pretend Between You and Me she said "teeth".

I happen to think it's an excellent topic. But I also knew I was in trouble. Iris has her sparkly eyes on my job, I can just feel it.

Iris couldn't have picked a better role model. Maybe Teeth would be a good subject for "Between You and Me" if Iris thinks so.(Good smiles) Also she might want to consider being a traveling motor home librarian, you think? and/or a radio show host!

Tell Iris that with 45 minutes, a computer and a microphone I can lay down a piece on teeth. No problem. But don't worry, Heidi. She's really not a threat until she can drive.
