Old man Angelo Cataldi continues to have one foot out the door to his retirement and dipped back into his bag of tricks this morning, summoning CBS 3’s weather girl Meisha Johnson to the WIP Morning Show studios to make sure she receives her recommended daily dose of the heebie jeebies and grill her on her love life.
It’s a tired bit and just an excuse for Cataldi to “help” Meisha “put on her headphones,” but my heart always skips a beat and the sky looks even more blue when this pops up on my twitter feed.
There is nothing better in this world than reading the responses from WIP listeners to Meisha Johnson on Twitter.
Now, usually I’ll go through these tweets and pick out the best ones, but today is different. The very first tweet sent to Meisha is from a listener @gregfrompotomac who “playfully” encourages Meisha to reveal their relationship on air.
Oh ho! I see what you did there, Gregory! Just some “cute” flirting about the “relationship” you have with Meisha. Well done sir! I’m sure the WIP Morning Show gang will get a good laugh out of it.
Hmmm…maybe we should take a quick look at Gregory’s twitter feed, see what else he’s been up to. Probably just a one time tweet to Meisha to be cute, right? Yeah, probably, nobody would make this a habit, right? RIGHT?!
Beloved, huh? Ok, he had a bit of a crush on Meisha, no problem. And he’s using his infatuation to encourages others to donate to the PSPCA? I commend the effort, Gregory.
But he probably doesn’t do this with other reporters, right?
Odd. Another “flirty” tweet to another woman in the news media. She’s not even in the Philadelphia market. Whatever, it’s probably nothing, just trying to be nice I’m sure.
What the hell…same rose picture, another tweet to yet another news woman who is in the San Francisco market. Couldn’t be farther away from Philadelphia. What gives, Gregory?
GREG, DOES THIS EVER WORK?! I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. They’re not even real roses. Also, you know other people can see these tweets, right? I’m not an expert on women, but I don’t think Penthouse pets are all that impressed with random pictures of roses on Twitter sent from a guy who tweets them out to any woman who comes across his field of vision.
Another rose. Another reporter. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?
It was about at this point that I started to even doubt Gregory was a WIP listener. But if he doesn’t listen, how does he even know about Meisha? She doesn’t broadcast in his market…every tweet he makes is from Maryland.
And if he doesn’t watch her, how does he know it’s her work anniversary?
Greg, I’m not mad, but I am a bit concerned and disappointed with how much energy you’re putting into this.
Greg, by “nephews” do you mean furiously searching for new weather girls on twitter? I don’t think you’ll be holding those at the gate when she gets home, buddy, THEY’RE NOT REAL. NONE OF THIS IS REAL, GREG, NONE OF IT.
(big ups for the <wink> though, I did enjoy that)
And he’s definitely not a one weather woman man. It goes on. And on. And on. And on. He gets SO much mileage out of that vase of roses picture.
Another meteorologist, the same picture of a vase of roses.
The vase of roses, but I don’t think she’s a weather girl.
But at this point I just have to respect the hustle, Gregory. Please note the date on that last tweet. March 28, 2016. More than a year and a half worth of vase rose pictures and that’s only because I stopped looking. I’m sure there are more. COUNTLESS MORE.
It was an emotional journey, believe me. I started off creeped out, now I’ve come around to just being completely numb. Would it surprise me if this fella had one of these ladies in his basement and made her perform weather updates for him on a daily basis? IT WOULD NOT. Do I think he does that? Probably not, but he’s not doing himself any favors.
We’ll leave it at this…I must have answers.
GOD SPEED GREGORY, MAY YOUR TACTIC ONE DAY LAND YOU THE WEATHER GIRL OF YOUR DREAM.
