I was in the kitchen getting myself a cup of coffee when Cliff said, "Hey, that's the machine I lay under every day, right here on TV" and then said, "I'm pausing this so you can see."
The news crew was doing a brief segment about how tofu can increase the risk of advanced prostate cancer, but for about five seconds, this image was put on our local Fox 4 news:
I decided to delay my coffee refill for a minute and went to see.
"That is the exact machine I lay in every day for five minutes," he said, almost proudly.
"Not only that, but it's YOU in the picture," I responded.
"I think you're right!"
Of course I'm right. I recognize the shirt and the arm, and so did he after it was called to his attention. Normally Cliff would be wearing overalls, but he often wears his one pair of jeans to treatments. He's hit the big-time. He said he didn't remember anybody else in the room, but I pointed out that since it didn't show his face, he couldn't have seen a person taking a picture.
Cliff's doing fine, although the he does have one side effect now from the estrogen in his body (lots of hot flashes) and one caused by the radiation (extreme tiredness and lots of sleeping). Nothing terrible so far, and he only has to do this until December 5.
I just wanted to share his fame with my readers.
