Oprah Winfrey, Ronan Keating and Alan Obermayer were seated in front of his new !Phone, watching Superbowl XLV in Ms. Winfrey’s lush California garden with Orville Reddenbacher on their laps.
“Move over, Alan. You’re hogging the screen” said Ronan. Oprah leaned back, Ronan popped a kernel of Orville into the air. “Alan, we’re so glad to have you” he said.
Oogling over her with a big smile, Alan responded, “I’m so glad to be had.” And with that, he stopped chewing, and began picking on a kernel that had gotten lodged in an upper left molar.
Oprah stopped to Tweet her twenty million Twits. Alan began complaining that she was not ‘in the moment’, to which Mr. Keating replied “Alan, you say it best when you say nothing at all.”
“I’ll shut up now, rather than then,” replied Alan, sheepishly, and with that, his lips were sealed, as in his heart he sang the song, you say it best when you say nothing at all — until he parted again, to catch one more kernel of Orville. Feeling attacked, Alan finally turned to his blog. “I think I will begin to write” he said.
“Stop that!” yelled Oprah, tossing her Tweets aside, “now see what you’ve done — you made us miss a touchdown!”
“I made us miss???” With that, Mr. Alan turned on Ms. Winfrey’s big, big screen garden TV. “There!” he said. “C’mon, Sadie, let’s go for a drink. I never liked basketball much anyway!”
And so it was.
