Am I a DJ?
Being one half of Tim and Simon often results in my friends and family introducing me to new people in a certain way.
Friend: Tim, this is Paul, He’s a Chicken Sexer
Me: Hey Paul nice to meet you, I’m Tim.
Friend: Tim’s a DJ.
Tim: Well I’m not really sure Paul. Am I a DJ? A Disk Jockey is “A person who plays recorded music for an audience” – Wikipedia (2012). (Tim really does cite his references in conversation – Simon)
Well, we do play recorded music on the radio, but I’m not sure I’m comfortable with being labelled as a DJ. A DJ to me is someone whose role is specifically about the music. Whether it’s an old school disco DJ or a modern club DJ playing drum and bass classics shouting things like:
“When the light flickers, remove those knickers”
That might be a lie, especially at school discos.
But, I don’t think I’m a DJ Paul, I don’t have the equipment and my music collection is modest at best. I’ll leave the clubs to proper DJs. I’d much rather be introduced as a presenter. I’m much more comfortable with that.
Anyway Paul, you’re a CHICKEN SEXER?!!! WTF is up with that?
Paul: Did you just say WTF out loud?
Me: Yes. Sorry Paul.
