We discuss whether the chicken is going to be ready in time. I’m confident it will, but the last thing Yankee Magazine needs is for me to cut into a raw chicken and serve it to Lester Holt — so we increase the heat with more live coals. I pace some more, I run through the recipes in my head. Are there enough side towels? What if I forget to use a towel or it’s wet and I reach for the cast-iron pan, which has been on the grill for the last hour? That’ll leave a mark.

Suddenly Lester and Amy Robach are standing next to me and the lights are on. Roars and hoots from the crowd. I know I’m speaking and going through the motions, but all I can hear is my heart pounding. It feels like a car crash: Just keep the car on the road. And before it has started it’s over. Everyone is smiling and laughing and eating.

Like a great roller coaster ride — I want to get on it again.
