A friend and co-worker looked at me the other day and very earnestly asked, "Why aren't you famous yet?"
I told her that my mother asks that all the time.
And she said that, although she does want success for me, she knows that the day will come when I'll come into work and say "I just booked some amazing job! I have to quit!" And when that day comes, she'll be bummed.
All of these things are nice sentiments.
You made my day.
