What To Do When Life Hands You Carrots


So I just moved to town, Henderson to be exact. And I've been flooded and flattered with lots of "welcome to Vegas" calls and even a few gifts. Well, one of these gifts was intended to be a gag gift that ended up backfiring on the sender. Let me explain.

I'll start by saying I'm a vegan. I think you're required to open with that, but I digress. So I've had a long going back and forth with a friend who always liked to make jokes about my dietary choices. So when it was announced that I was hired at 95.5 The Bull, he thought it funny to send me a GIANT back of carrots. I laughed, sure. But I wasn't gonna give him the satisfaction of that, nor was I going to just throw this bag away. It would have taken me a year to eat all of those carrots!

So I looked up a horse stables locally and the folks at Gala Stud Farm were grateful for the donation. There is an old adage "When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade." Well, when life hands you carrots, pay it forward.

That being said, if you are plant-based with your diet, please let me know where your favorite places to eat are in town! I'm on a mission to try them all. Just drop me an email: mojoeroberts@iheartmedia.com and point me in the right direction.

And to the person that sent the gag gift, I'll have you know the Stud farm said you would have felt very out of place there!
